• “Think back: What is your earliest memory?; Name something good about getting older; Do you remember going to your first dance?
• “Let’s talk!: Do you like your name?; If you had one wish, what would it be?; What do you enjoy reading?
Contents: 80 cards, instructions and ideas, boxed.
Who Will Benefit from this Activity?
