I used these with two of my special needs social groups. The teen group especially liked them. A quieter friend was determined to roll all 6 cubes and land on every question or prompt. ? This sparked the others to roll all 6 cubes. I’m grateful the cubes are small & soft since they were tossed around the room for everyone to get a turn. Needless to say, we LOVED them!
The cubes were great for social skills group. When student can not think of a topic they roll the dice then the kids stay on the topic… works great. Wish they were changeable. Maybe dice with clear pockets to put the starter in so can make more focused on specific topics of interest.
In January we had a girls’ activity at church for ages 7-10, and called it, “Getting to know you.” We began in masks in a circle on the floor, a few feet apart. Each girl picked up a cube, and chose which question she wanted to answer. Some chose an easy one, such as favorite color. To my surprise, one girl chose to respond to, “Tell about a time that you were really scared.” She admitted to the group that she is afraid of cats and dogs, and described what happened. It was great for the girls to learn to listen to her story, because most of them love animals, and learned that it’s not true for everyone. I will offer to lend these cubes to our boys’ group, and to the girls ages 11-17! The only question I asked them to not choose was, “Who is your best friend?” Could lead to confusion and hurt feelings, and I told them our purpose is to help everyone feel included.
Bought one set for my son with autism and another set for his therapist. Therapist liked these dice so much, that I bought for him a separate set as a present.

The conversation cubes are a wonderful tool for any classroom. Excellent for large or small group ice breakers, story starters for writing activities, student-lead discussions, games, and many more. My 5 and 8 y/o grandkids enjoyed them too!
These are great to use with kids and teens in therapy to get to know one another.
I used them as a summer camp counselor for 8-12 year olds and they were awesome! The youngers made games out of it and the older kids liked getting to know each other better. They are bouncy and colorful, and soft, really a cool tool for kids!
