Wonderful product I've used for years!

Parents, teachers, counselors, therapists - these cards are a must-have!
I have purchased these cards many times over the years, both for my own professional and personal use, and as gifts for others. They allow children to open up in a playful way, and create wonderful conversation starters between kids and adults. With my own child, they are a fun way to chat and learn new things about each other. With kids and families in therapy, they create opportunities to assess needs and deepen relationships between family members, or between client and therapist.
There are so many ways to use them, too! You can just draw from the deck and shre, or you can pair these cards with another favorite game. For example, I sometimes bring the cards out along with Checkers or Chess, and anytime someone loses a game piece to the other player, they draw a card and complete the sentence. I have also paired the cards with Jenga, Don't Break the Ice, Candyland, Chutes and Ladders, and many other childhood games.
Kids love the adorable artwork, and the fact that they can answer their own way makes these cards a non-threatening way to get to know someone new or deepen a relationship with someone trusted.
I highly recommend this and other Bright Spots products to anyone with children from about age three (adults read the card aloud for the child) to adult.
