Acts of Kindness
Players are encouraged to put words into action and spread kindness. Toss the thumball and wherever your thumb lands will be the act of kindness to perform that day. Players are encouraged to report back how the act of kindness made them feel and how they think it affected someone else. This Thumball™ will build strength of character and empathy and will encourage social interaction. This is a great way to incorporate caring acts into everyday life and to encourage a lifelong habit of being kind.
Thumball is a soft stuffed ball to throw, roll, or pass in a circle or randomly. Catch it! Look under your thumb. Respond to the prompt. People of all ages absolutely love this interactive tool that will get them talking and sharing. Without even knowing it, you will be encouraging the use of interpersonal skills including taking turns, eye contact, listening, responding, valuing similarities and respecting individual differences.
