The Play Opportunities for Wellness and Education Resource (P.O.W.E.R.) is a collection of 100 gender-responsive play-based learning activities created to support parents, teachers, coaches, social workers and others to promote children’s learning and development. The 100 games are available as animated videos and short PDF manuals. They support girls and boys to develop holistic life skills like communication, empathy, creativity and confidence, promote psychosocial well-being, teach children how to process difficult emotions, and show them how to be inclusive of peers of all backgrounds, genders, and abilities. The games are designed for children of varying ages, and are meant to be played in classrooms, community settings, or at home, with few to no materials required. Each game includes a play-based activity with one key learning, and guidance for how to encourage girls and boys to reflect on what they’ve learned, connect it to their own experiences, and apply it in their lives.
