Why Teach Coping Strategies

Coping strategies are any activities that can help calm emotions and stress. Kids and young adults may often experience difficult emotions but do not have appropriate coping strategies for dealing with those feelings. Just some of the coping strategies discussed and practiced within this resource include: taking a walk, coloring, deep breathing, practicing mindfulness, using positive self-talk, practicing yoga, counting to ten, talking to a friend, and much more.

Most importantly, kids and young adults need practice with these coping skills. In order to effectively use such strategies when they are upset or overwhelmed, kids must have extensive practice with the strategies when they are calm. Use this board game to help students feel more confident and comfortable using those coping skills when they really need them.

How to Play

Students can play in groups of two to four. Students will take turns rolling the dice and moving forward on the game board. When they land on a spot, they will use the picture to tell them which card to pick up and read. Students will read the card and discuss the situation or act out the strategy to practice. Once a card is completed, it can be returned to the bottom of the pile. Then, the next player will go. Because the game includes over 100 unique situation cards, the game can be played again and again!

Note that both black/white and color options are included. Blank cards are also included to make your own social situations, as needed.
