“Smart Heart”™ Board Game - (PTG 101). Ages 5 - 13+ with 2-4 Players
Available in English & Afrikaans
Smart Heart, a revolutionary board game developed to encourage emotional expression in children.
It aims is to change the way many children express themselves and interact with others.
The interactive game, which makes use of picture and word cards that assist children in identifying and communicating their feelings, aims to facilitate and foster mental and emotional health, while encouraging children to think for themselves and create solutions to their problems.
As players move forward on the board, they land on one of three options:
• Talk-Talk cards: answering questions, e.g. What do you like about your school?
Or: A girl is playing by herself at break time. How could you include her in your game?
• I feel…when… cards: talking about a time when they felt the same feeling that is represented on the card, e.g. I feel embarrassed (or important, or tired etc.) when…
• Pic-Tales: describing or telling a story about the picture on the card, e.g. a picture of a baby’s pram with a bottle, dummy etc., or a cat staring into a mirror and seeing a lion in the reflection.
It is important to note that there is no right or wrong answer, only the experience as perceived by the person answering.
