A social-emotional game that develops empathy and compassion!
Can players help a little girl who’s sad because she’s standing out in the rain or a boy who’s afraid of the dark? With Friends and Neighbors children will learn how!
Friends and Neighbors is a matching game that focuses on emotions. Children encounter persons with a problem and reach into the Helping Bag to pull out a token – can the token help someone on the game board? If so, it’s a match!
In playing the game and reading about the feelings and needs of the characters, parents can help their children recognize feelings in others – the first step to building empathy.
Game includes 4 game boards, 14 tokens, 1 Helping Bag, 1 Stop Sign board, parent guide and Friends and Neighbors book.
Children will learn:
- How to recognize and name emotions
- What it feels like to be a helper
What is a cooperative game? It’s a game where everyone plays together, no one is left out, and everyone has fun! In a cooperative game, players work together as a team against a common obstacle, not against each other.
Cooperative games emphasize play, not competition. Kids work together, they help each other and, most importantly, they play for FUN!
Cooperative Games foster:
- Non-stressful play situations
- Emotional development
- Shared decision making
- Creative problem solving
- A sense of community
- Positive self esteem
