A FRIEND IS A TREASURE 78
From 7 years upwards
Aim of the game

This game, already presented in chapter 9.1.2 dedicated to cognitive functions, more specifically in the section on cognitive flexibility, is oriented in this version towards the development of problem solving skills. In order for this motor ‘problem solving’ game to facilitate the transfer of this skill from the game to other life contexts, a child’s everyday life situation is simulated (a metaphor of decisionmaking in a social situation): there is an obstacle (table) between the child and the friend that must be got past so the two can meet and make peace. The game, in this version, stimulates the search for new strategic solutions, introducing cooperation and defense against disruptive actions.
