It’s no surprise that I LOVE using Jenga questions in therapy. Whether the questions are about music, storytelling, art, or just to build rapport, Jenga is an amazing tool.
While working at an agency I had been assigned a task to write questions on several sets of Jenga blocks. The team had realized that the questions that were previously used on the Jenga sets were questions like “Whats your favorite color?”, “What season do you lost the most”, etc. which were fantastic for rapport building. BUT, those questions get old so fast and some kids want to play Jenga at every session!
So part of my job was to create a massive list of questions that never get old. I spent hours putting this list together and I have to say, they don’t get old! Kids and teens love them and you get a new answer almost every time.
These questions can be asked numerous times, week over week, and they don’t get old. Too old anyway. Here are a few examples:
- Describe a time that you felt really excited lately.
- What was a challenge you faced this week?
- Who made you feel good this week?
- Rate your day so far on a scale of 1-10.
- Finish the sentence “I hope…..”
