These are traditional pencil and paper games and activities that teach important concepts in a fun and memorable way. Each game highlights a mini-step in our process of learning how to dream and turning those dreams into reality. Our games also reinforce basic subjects like the three Rs (reading, writing and arithmetic) and are intended to keep kids grounded in this digitally-saturated world.
And stay tuned to test drive some new games for our upcoming sequel “Map it!”

Feel Your Feelings
We’ve designed two fun and free games to go along with our new book Feel Your Feelings.
Emoji Cutout Kit
Feel Your Feelings is a fun book to read, act out, and enjoy. It helps us accept that feeling our feelings is okay and that every emotion has a benefit. This book is a great way to start a larger conversation about emotions with children. To help, we created these questions and activities that you can pose during or after reading the book. It can help children understand the information presented in the book as well as practice applying the concepts to their lives!
The talking points also include a couple new activities.

We’ve designed two fun and free games to go along with our new book Dream it! A Playbook to Spark Your Awesomeness.
Easter Egg Hunt
Try to find all the hidden surprises in Dream It!
Our first game is a companion game for our new book “Dream It!” is The Easter Egg Hunt. In this case, “Easter egg” means a hidden surprise. If you saw the movie Ready Player One, you learned that the first hidden surprise was a message in the 1979 video game “Adventure” by Atari. The term was coined “Easter egg” to encourage players to hunt for all the surprises just like the real holiday game. It became so popular that Easter eggs are now part of almost every game, movie and television show, and — of course — our book.
