Step 1) Dream. Step 2) Map. Step 3) Play. And illustrations of the Dreamaplay hats. Each representing a different aspect of how to dream, and how to turn dreams into reality, and how to enjoy living your dream. The colander with lightbulb for dream it! The treasure map folded into a paper hat for map it! And the jester's hat for play it.

Are you ready to make dreams come true?

We teach kids (and adults) how to dream, how to turn those dreams into reality, and how to have fun doing it. We use our evidence-based process: Dream it! Map it! Play it! And, we use traditional pencil-and-paper games and hands-on activities that teach important concepts and put them into action right away — because we love to learn by doing — playing! More about our Dream Theory.

Happy Birthday (April 12) to Feel Your Feelings!

Feel Your Feelings introduces children to basic emotions with fun poems that they can act out from head to toe. They will learn that emotions are our friends. Some emotions show us what we love, others protect us from harm, and all of them put together, like colors on an artist’s palette, paint a beautiful picture of life. More info.

Three simple reasons why we need emotions

Some emotions show us what we love, others protect us from harm, and as you can see in the rainbow illustration from our book, all of them put together, like colors on an artist’s palette, paint a beautiful picture of life. I’ll explain these ideas below. And, I have a fun challenge for you that I call “the joy of fear.”
