Children’s Activity: Little Circles of Calm

How can we help children to calm their minds?

Sometimes, we all can find ourselves feeling a little overwhelmed, stressed or exhausted. In those moments, it can feel challenging to work out what we need/want to do to help us feel better.

#3 – Sit down together and consider which activities your child enjoys which make them feel calm

#4 – Select their favourites and add one to each petal

#5 – Cut out the flower

#6 – Fold in the petals
