The Big Book of Blobs is a collection of Blob pictures that can be used as prompts to explore feelings. The relatable Blob characters are depicted in many different situations which can be used as a springboard for meaningful discussion on a range of issues and topics. The Blobs in this collection are organised into themes of places, issues, occasions and personal development, and include scenarios such as beach, cinema, city, concert, home, playground, bullying, death, fame, money, parents, romance, sleep, Christmas, Easter, Olympics, body, caring and feelings.
This second edition includes new Blob pictures in areas such as bereavement, self-harming, faith and A&E. Each Blob picture comes with suggested questions that can be used to guide the discussion; ranging from straightforward questions (which Blob is happy?) to more personal questions designed to explore opinions and feelings (Which Blob do you not understand? Which Blob would you like to be?). Offering handy photocopiable resources, the Big Book of Blobs provides a unique way to initiate conversations on a range of topics with individuals or groups of any age.
