Thumball is a soft stuffed ball to throw, roll, or pass in a circle or randomly. Catch it! Look under your thumb. Respond to the prompt. Kids absolutely love this interactive tool that will get them talking and sharing. Without even knowing it, you will be encouraging the use of interpersonal skills including taking turns, eye contact, listening, responding, valuing similarities and respecting individual differences. There are 32 panels for each 4-6″ stuffed poly-cotton ball.


Players read and respond to prompts about peacemaking skills and strategies. Discussions may include knowing the difference between Big Deals and Little Deals, how to be a peacemaker, ways to resolve conflicts, and to make peace in different situations. If time allows, follow-up by encouraging participants to roleplay and practice having a peacemaking conversation.
