The ‘feel good’ game – Item 66

£3.00

Add to wishlist

The feel good game – is a game about self-esteem. The game will promote discussion on positive aspects of the child’s life and will use affirmations and character traits to reinforce self-esteem.

The game could be played on a one to one basis or a group basis. My suggestion is no more than four children.

To make the game

Photocopy or print the game board onto A3 paper then laminate

Print all the cards, laminate and cut into separate cards

Print the ‘I am board’ and laminate,  print 4 of each so that you have enough for girls or boys.

The game consists of:

Affirmation cards

Character trait cards

‘I am’ boards

A game board

You will also need counters, dry wipe pens and a die to play.

How to play

Choose the person to go first by each throwing the die and the highest number thrown goes first.  Go clockwise from that person.

The first person throws the die and moves their counter that number of spaces.

They must answer the question they land on,  however, if they land on affirmation then they must read this out to the rest of the group. Ask the child if they agree with the statement. They may or may not. If they land on a ‘character trait’ they must read it out and explain what it means. If they cannot explain it then ask if anyone else can help?  If they think they have this character trait they can write it on their ‘I am board’. The aim is for each child to have 5 character traits on their board at the end of the game. Continue going round the board until each child has their five character traits.

There isn’t a winner as such with this game as the aim is for the children to learn about their positive traits When they have all filled their ‘I am’ board then they are all winners!

You can photocopy each ‘I am board’ before erasing the writing for the next game.

"A fantastic and inspirational website. The resources are an ELSA's dream, everything is so well thought out and each one can be used for more than one purpose. I have recommended the website to other ELSA's in my supervision group and they all think it's great too!"
