Self-esteem is the value we place on our own worth. It is the opinion we have of ourselves. The way we view our worth in the world. It can be positive or negative, and the level of our self-esteem impacts the way that we see the world and the events that occur in our lives.
Helping children to recognise their strengths and positive traits is a great first step to supporting them to develop their self-esteem. You may have already used our self-esteem buckets, so in this activity we are looking at how we can grow our self-esteem garden.
So, this week, we are sharing our Self-esteem Garden that you can complete with children, to help them reflect on their interests, support and strengths. A fun, simple and constructive conversation which places emphasis on our positives.
How to us it:
- Download the activity sheet (HERE)
- Find a quiet space
- Take time to talk through each question
- Praise thoughts, feelings expressed and ideas
- What might we do to grow our garden further?
