Emotion Toss – A Play Therapy Game about Emotions

Sometimes, people have a hard time verbalizing their emotions or even acknowledging that certain events may trigger a specific or combination of emotions and responses. The Emoticon Toss game educates individuals – young and old - on their feelings and emotions through the use of visual and verbal associations. It can be used during individual counseling sessions, small groups, classroom guidance, or as an icebreaker activity.

• Emoticon Board
• Velcro Beanbag Ball

• At least 1 with a facilitator

• An indiviudal will toss the beanbag ball at the board.
• Whichever emoticon the ball sticks to will be the highlighted emotion for that turn.
• The faciltatator will then allow the player(s) to draw or act out the emotion or an event that they belive will bring out said emotion.
• The facilitator will then discuss the response(s) with the player(s) and work with the player(s) to create techniques on expressing and handling their emotions in a posiitve manner.
