Step 1

Make the game board

Cut out a square of a carton board and divide the board into four equal parts. Leave open space in the middle to attach the arrow. Alternatively, you can also use the rotation disc of the mobile school as a template.

Step 2

Add images to the four categories

Now, find images of professions, sports, arts & culture or any other category you like and paste them to the carton board. This way you will get four categories. Leave a small blank space in the middle of each category so children can add things which are not shown on the images.

Step 3

Attach the arrow

To conclude, cut an arrow from your carton board and attach it to the middle of the panel. This way, you can spin the arrow so it can land on one of the four categories.

I love the fact the game focusses on opportunities and future orientation! It aims to leave the negative experiences behind and to focus on positive things that are still in front of us. Moreover, the rotation disc is an easy methodology to open up the discussion with children on what they want to become in live. Recommended!

I really recommend this game, personally, I have experienced the importance of dreaming. I was selling on the streets from 8 to 16 years old, but I followed my dreams, and became a communication professional. I think it is a great and fun game to play with kids and youth to talk openly about their dreams and the steps they need to take to achieve it, even in highly complex situations.

Fun game where children are challenged to think about the future. The game stimulates dreams and focuses on the positive through targeted questions. As a game leader it is easy to build and there is also room for contribution from the players.
