why i am discussing only about bean game? … it’s only a example. You can try lot other games for your kids too.

Bean game

This game will assess your child’s self image and at the same time you can enforce positive opinions to your child. For the beanbag game you will need a poster board ( preferably a large one) and draw a 3 x 3 matrix on it.

In each square, you write or draw the different aspects of your child’s life on each square of the matrix. For example you can write or draw a school to represent the school life of your child. You can write or draw a representation of parents to signify relationships. Be creative and try to address the more important issues.

Lay your poster board on the floor and give your child a beanbag. Let him or her toss it on the poster board and see where it lands. If it lands in the school box, let him or her to tell you about school – opinions, events, and feelings toward the school. This also applies to the other squares.

once your kid finishes his or her discussion, it is your turn- to toss the beanbag. If it lands in the school, you tell your child all the things about school that makes you proud of him or her. It could be a quiz that he or she aced, or it could be for always waking up early so as not to be late. Do this cycle again and again until you finish all the squares.
