“EQtainment is on a mission to improve emotional intelligence globally by creating fun and simple tools for practicing social skills and better behavior.”

If you have young kids, this is a must get game set.

 

Did you know that social and emotional skills, not academics, have been found to be a better indicator of a child’s future success in their career, relationships, health, and happiness?

 

I am excited when I find a new product that my kids love. I am especially excited when it is not just fun but provides some type of balance to my child’s life. Learning new skills is important at all ages, and one thing that often gets over looked is developing the emotional skills of children. So it was so great to see the product line of EQTainment. All 5 of these activities approach the topic of emotional and social intelligence in a fun and lighthearted way that gets young gets thinking and talking about how they feel and react to things.

It begins with a simple question…

 

We are crazy about the #Qtime Questions and Action Cards! It is a box of cards that we have found make for some fun learning on the go to stay entertained while doing something that might usually be a bit boring- like the drop off line at school.

YOU cards ask introspective questions, like “When do you feel brave?” These are great conversation starters. I have learned so much from my 5 year old’s answers.  Q Cards ask players to tell Q what he should do in various situations like the one in the photos here, allowing your child to encourage good manners, coping, and positive attitudes. DO cards consist of fun physical challenges to improve balance and coordination. Combining all the categories, this simple yet interactive card game creates a fabulous atmosphere for developing emotional self-control.

Not your normal board game

 

 

I actually love board games; probably more than anyone in my family. Though not a board game expert, I would say I have played my fair share. The EQtainment board game is Q’s Race to the Top and appropriate for children under 7. This is differently from any board game I have ever played.  It appears similar to Candy Land because you are trying to get your colorful monkey pieces to the top aka “treehouse” by rolling the dice and counting your blocks up. But the things you do along have more purpose than just trying to win- the game actually encourages conversation over competition using similar YOU, DO and Q cards like the on the go game.

Do you have a favorite board game that is not only fun but educational for your young kids?
