Problem Solving ColorCards




  • All ages (4-18)

This is a collection of 16 cards of everyday problems with two solutions for each one. Some problems have to be solved immediately, some can be dealt with over time. Some are serious some are annoying. Some of the ways we deal with difficulties are more effective than others. Problems and solutions include:
• Car broken down – try to repair it, asks where to get help
• Woman is unhappy as overweight – tries healthy eating, exercise
• Child is unhappy and bored – woman comforts her, woman takes her out
• Girl doesn’t like her meal – leaves it, talks to the waiter
• Man cannot sleep – has a hot drink, reads a book
• Woman and girl argue – they sulk, they make up.

The cards are useful for understanding the need to approach problems logically, realising that problems may influence later events, learning that some solutions may not please everyone involved, appreciating that feelings can influence the choices we make.
