Small Talk: Discussion Cards for Kids
With Small Talk: Discussion Cards, any game can be turned into a fun therapeutic activity for kids. Each Small Talk card asks a simple question about one of three topics, along with a more challenging "Digging Deeper" question or activity.
This packet includes twenty-four cards in the categories of "family", "feelings", and "my world". Just print the cards (we suggest using a light card stock) and cut them out to begin.
Small Talk cards are designed to be used creatively. Here are just a few ideas of how to make the most of them:
- If a game has dice, draw a Small Talk card whenever you roll an even number. Earn extra points, or an extra roll, for a good answer.
- Answer a Small Talk question during pivotal points of card games. For example, when getting a pair in "Go Fish".
- Skip the games entirely! Answering questions can be a fun experience in itself. Feel free to share card packs with parents for them to use at home. Answering a few questions before bed is a great addition to a night-time routine.
