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.
Calm Flower Circles
So, this week, we are sharing our calm circles with you. All you need to do is:
#1 – Download the print out here
#2 – Grab some pens and pencils
#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
#7 – When we next feel restless, overwhelmed or stressed randomly select a petal and unfold it to follow the activity
Some ideas your child might like:
- A walk
- Get outside on your bike
- Bake something
- Colouring or art work
- Audio Books (check out our collection)
- Hypnotherapy Audios (check out our collection here)
- Make slime or playdough
- Snuggle up with a book
