Enjoy quality time with the kids in your life in just five minutes for zilch dollars
Originally conceived as a class project by a student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and further developed at the Harvard Innovation Labs, The Friday Game is a series of games designed to spark conversation between children and adults to improve connectedness. Basically, the goal is to have conversations that don't suck. And despite the name "The Friday Game," you can play it any day of the week. We think Fridays are cool and we also like games. That's all.
HELL YEAH WE GUARANTEE IT WHY ELSE DO YOU THINK WE STARTED THIS?! In all seriousness, many of the game questions are designed so you can learn more about your niece/nephew/child and how they perceive the world...so we truly hope that by playing maybe you'll feel just a wee bit closer to the little people in your life. And that's gotta count as some type of win, right? (Cue sappy music)
3 + 7 + 2 - 12
Generally, ages 8 to adult -- and everyone, no matter their age -- can play together at the same time.
While we'd prefer constructive feedback and new game suggestions over slaughtered piscine flesh, some nincompoop once told us that the customer is always right, so mail that trout corpse here: anoo_vyas (at) gse.harvard.edu.
