Date of publication:  01 Jan 2007 Authors:  Terre des hommes Publisher:  Terre des hommes Publication type:  Toolkit / Handbook / Manual

This technical sheet outlines the methodology behind tales and riddles, activities that are intended to enable children - especially those with psychosocial problems and difficulties – to find some respite from the realities of daily life through the use of their imagination.  They can be used in any environment where children are able to meet in groups (centres, camp, playgrounds, etc.) Not only are these useful tools for enhancing the wellbeing of children but they are also useful tools for developing skills in problem solving, educating children on morality and developing children’s personalities – at the emotional, cognitive and intellectual level.  This short manual includes objectives for implementation, as well as the requirements for implementation.
