Christmas Race to the top Emotions - Elsa Support

Christmas Race to the top Emotions

This is a version of our Race to the top emotions game but with a Christmas twist.

Both players need a peg and you need a die. I would suggest covering up the numbers 4,5,6 on the die so as to make the game last longer or you could make a rule that if you throw a 4,5,6 you have to go back one or stay where you are.

Throw the die and whatever number you get you must move your peg up the board, one word at a time. Whichever emotion word you land on you must tell about a time when you felt like that. You could adapt this to ‘make the expression’ or ‘physical sensations’ or ‘act it out’. The first person to finish and get to the top is the winner BUT you must throw the exact number to finish on the top square.
