Who It's For

Children ages 3 and older  

Why It Empowers

Many children love to engage in interactive play but sometimes aren’t sure what to do. This is a great resource when a sibling or peer starts engaging in inappropriate or hurtful play. Also, with more parents working from home, many children need activities they can do while a parent is on a conference call or can’t immediately interact with them.

What's Needed

  • Jar or container (not easily breakable)
  • Strips of paper
  • Pen or pencil
  • Already a member?
