Why The Tournesol Kids Game?
Our kids are suffering today in ways other generations couldn’t have imagined. Research has shown that childhood asthma, allergies, ADHD, depression and anxiety are on the rise. Medicines provide temporary solutions, but our kids are still turning to unhealthy choices to feel better. We need to empower kids with the skills to face challenges in a way that is simple, affordable, effective and backed by science.
That’s why we came up with the Tournesol Kids Game. We created something really useful that kids want to do, parents can easily practice at home, and teachers can implement seamlessly into the classroom.
About The Cards
This collection of activity cards helps your kids develop the three key skills that science shows are predictors of better health and greater success: healthy physical self-image, empathy for others, and creative problem solving.
The cards address core physical, emotional, and cognitive pillars of healthy child development including healthy eating, moving, sleeping, and breathing, as well as focusing, planning, coping with strong emotions, and problem solving.
How It Works
• First, kids discover their unique way of responding to stress with our online assessment.
• Second, kids build self-awareness by playing the card activities that correspond to how they deal with stress.
• Third, they grow empathy for others and strong problem-solving skills by playing the rest of the cards in the deck in any order they wish!
