Our body language, especially our hands, can say so much. We play a game called “My hands can say…”
It’s all about miming what we feel using our hands. We make up situations and take turns using our hands to communicate how we feel.
Another twist is for each one to come up with an emotion and mime it with their hands and the other has to name the emotion.
Simple game, loads of fun!
