Social Skills Jenga

Jenga is one of the most used games at our hospital!  We use this version on the day we talk about developing social skills.

I have a Jenga set with a colored dot on one end of each piece.  The dots are red, green, blue or purple.

Play Jenga as normal.  When a player pulls out a Jenga piece, look at the color of the dot.  Based on the dot color, the player has to do a specific thing.  Examples include:

Red = Name a social skill
Blue = Compliment the person to your left
Green = Recreation Therapist presents a social situation and player says how he would react in that situation
Purple = Set a goal to improve a social skill
