Telehealth Activity: Bop-It

Remember Bop-It? Hours of fun, or two minutes of fun followed by a rage quit. I never had a Bop-It in my in-person office, but when I discovered the online version, it felt like an obvious option for kids working on executive functioning, attention, frustration tolerance, and emotion regulation.

Bop It

You can screen share and grant remote control, or have your client screen share the link on their end. Due to lag issues, I have found that this works better if the client pulls the link up on their end.

Start the game, and follow the prompts to Bop It, Twist It, and Pull It. One thing I really like about this version of the activity is that it has a Subtitles option, so Deaf or hard of hearing clients can see the prompts more easily.

I hope this activity is helpful. Remember to check out my new book, Telehealth Activities with Kids Toolbox, which comes out next week!
