Main Product Samples Instructions PDF Related Handy Handouts
Friends and Neighbors is a matching game that focuses on emotions.* Can players help a little girl who's sad because she's standing out in the rain or a boy who's afraid of the dark? During the game you will encounter friends and neighbors who need a little help. Some are sad; others are mad, scared, or frustrated. Can you tell what each one is feeling? You can help by reaching into the Helping Bag to find just what each needs to feel better. Can your token help someone on your game board? If so, it's a match! Complete one game board with 9 matching tokens before there are 5 red tokens on the Stop Sign.
Game time takes only 10 minutes.
*While playing Friends and Neighbors, parents and teachers can take this opportunity to talk to the players about the feelings of the characters, why they might be feeling that way, and how you might be able to help.
