Squash It!


Product Number : 1983

A Unique, hands-on SEL game using adorable, squishable characters. It includes 10 squishable, individually wrapped animal characters, 10 character description cards, and 42 situation cards that help children to explore and practice solving social and emotional issues using personal strengths.

Next, randomly choose a situation card and read it. Then brainstorm how someone might handle this situation using that character’s strength.
