This is a downloadable resource - once purchased, it will be available for you to download.

Interact is a game about communication. It is aimed at non-verbal communication skills. The game will teach children about gestures (some by touch), expressions, eye contact and voice (expressions, pitch and volume). It does not cover space and personal space although that could be addressed by the person leading the game.

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

The game consists of:

  • Say it cards
  • Expressions cards
  • Eye contact cards
  • Gesture cards
  • A game board
  • Bingo type boards

You will also need counters 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 will land on either ‘say it’ ‘gestures’ ‘eye contact’ or ‘expressions’. They must pick that card and do what is on the card. They may need help with the gestures as you may need to model to them what it means but they will soon begin to learn them. When they have done this they get a counter to put on their bingo board.

The first person to fill their bingo board is the winner. If someone has reached the finish star but still hasn’t filled in their bingo board then they must start again.

"ELSA/Learning mentorDebbie's Empathy game is my all time favourite resource. The children learn so much from this game and it has us in stitches every time we play. Debbie you are star, and without planning time would not be able to facilitate as many sessions as I do without your resources. Your resources are a great price especially when I have to purchase them out of my own pocket. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise to enable us to be successful in helping our troubled and complicated children."
