Expressing and deciphering emotions create confusion for children, especially when they want to tell others how they feel but don’t know how. Children with special needs have additional hardships when expressing their emotions because their disabilities may make it harder for them to learn how to share their feelings.

The month of April marks National Autism Awareness Month each year. Take the time this month to teach your children about how they can properly express their feelings and how some children, like those with Autism or other disabilities, may have trouble expressing their own.

The company Fun and Function specializes in products specifically designed for children with special needs and they have created a game that teaches children how to relate their emotions to different scenarios and show how they feel. In the game, Guess How I Feel?, when shown a card of a scenario or an object like an ice cream cone or a group of children riding a roller coaster, the players must either draw, write, or use magnetic eye and mouth pieces to show how they feel when seeing this card.

While the game was designed to help children with special needs strengthen their social skills, the game makes a helpful learning tool for children of all abilities. An additional bonus of the game: after each player guesses someone else’s feeling correctly, they receive a fun shaped color band from the gift bag!

Purchase your own at funandfunction.com or leave a comment below by Tuesday, May 3 for your chance to win this entertaining game of feelings. The winner will be selected randomly and notified by email.

Disclosure: Mom Central received two Guess How I Feel? games courtesy of Fun and Function to facilitate this review and giveaway.

    Expressing his feelings is one thing my son has a really hard time with. We are going through the 500 steps it takes to get him to a good doctor to help get him diagnosed and treated with what is going on with him, but in the mean time, this game sounds like something that would really, really benefit him, (and momma!) Does anyone know where I can get this game at, because chances are, I probably won’t win this…
