A fun word game to help preschoolers practice self-regulation strategies
What You Need:
- Musical instrument or party horn
What To Do:
- Give the child an instrument or party horn and say, “We are going to have a challenge game! See if you can blow the horn but only when you hear the magic word __ (e.g., unicorn).”
- Say random words such as, “Pizza, Slipper, Baseball, Unicorn!”
- Alternatively, make up some silly sentences with the word unicorn such as, “I went for a walk and met a unicorn (blow the horn). I was so surprised that I tripped and fell into a puddle. The unicorn (blow the horn) blew some dust on me and I flew into the air!”
- If a child makes a mistake, say, “Oops! That’s okay, let’s try again.”
