You’re a Hoot is a counseling game designed to help children learn how to use humor appropriately. Children often struggle to find the line between funny and disrespectful.  The cards are designed to help children process consequences of various choices.  Some cards are situation cards to help them think through specific situations, while others allow the child to discuss their beliefs and ideas about how to use humor.  


There are four card categories: Respecting Adults, Keeping it Clean, Friendly Fun, and Laughing Out Loud.  The respecting adults cards focus on identifying when it is appropriate to have fun and use humor with adults and when it becomes inappropriate or disrespectful. Keeping it Clean helps children identify ways to be funny without sexual content or foul language. The Friendly Fun helps children process how humor can be hurtful to others by teasing or embarrassing others. Children will learn social boundaries they should not cross while having fun. Finally, the Laughing Out Loud cards allow children to practice their favorite jokes and to use humor in session. 


This game could be played in individual, group, or family sessions.  At least 2 players are needed.  The game will go quickly.  You can go around the board as many times as needed to fill the time you have allotted.  


You will receive a PDF download with the cover and instructions, a gameboard, and 4 front and back sheets of game cards. Set your printer to print both sides. Printing on cardstock is recommended.


This game is also available as a hard copy and for telehealth
