One of my favorite things to do as a family is play board games. It’s a time for family bonding, learning and of course having fun. A few weeks ago we first tried out the new game Q’s Race to the Top by EQtainment. EQtainment helps kids practice emotional intelligence through fun and affordable games, storybooks, and videos. The best games are ones that make learning fun!
First, meet and read about Q, a lovable monkey in the storybook! It is then our job to help Q race to the top of his tree house by answering questions and performing actions on the board game! My kids are all in first grade and now is the time that practicing reading is extremely important. Reading the game cards was good practice, but the questions all help kids specifically build emotional intelligence (EQ) and work on important skills like self control, empathy and learning about “what would you do,” type situations that they will face.
I particularly think this is an awesome game for newly adopted children because it allows conversation about feelings (for example, the game card question: Talk about something that made you happy today) and addressing situations in which there might be a cultural barrier (for example: Q is still learning how to introduce himself the way that people do. What should Q do and say when he meets someone for the first time? Why is it important to look that person in the eyes?)
Q’s Race To The Top provides more than just practicing emotional intelligence skills for our family. It is a time where new brothers and sisters can play together, complete tasks together, ask each other questions and learn together, ultimately growing their new relationship as siblings.
Right now, you can support EQ Entertainment and Q’s Race To The Top on Kickstarter! Pledge $30 or more and you will receive the game and storybook at a special price with shipping included.
