Game Night | #SELatHome

Hello Gardeners!

We are starting a new segment on the #PullYourWeeds blog called #SELatHome. This segment is aimed to help parents continue the social and emotional learning at home through activities and crafts, while also helping to encourage those important gardening conversations!

Playing a board game with you friends or family is such a fun way to spend an evening in. It gives everyone a chance to pull away from television, homework, iPads, work stress, and just be present and enjoy each other. But board games also are a great way to sneak in a little social and emotional learning at home.

Different games target different learning opportunities.

Jenga helps players work on impulse control and self-monitoring. Since the object of the game is to prevent the tower from toppling over, this helps both kids and adults work on awareness and carefulness of movements.
