My Missing You Plan – Resource for children missing father’s and loved ones this Father’s Day
This resource is for any child missing their dad this Father’s Day. Bonus – this resource is non-specific and can be used for any occasion, event or loved one. This worksheet encourages your child to come up with a plan for a difficult day so that they feel prepared and are able to cope with grief.
 
 
What else is new?
 
My Pocket Worries
My Pocket Worries is all about helping children to notice, write down and explore their worries.
 
Directions: This two part activity helps children to explore their worries by first asking them to sort their worries into three pockets – their big, medium and small worries. This gets children thinking about which worries are bothering them the most – so that you know which ones to tackle first. When they have a worry, they can imagine putting it in their pocket until they are able to find someone to talk to about it.
 
OR – and now for the second part of our resource – they can use our Worry Pockets! Cut out and keep these lying around your house or classroom for children to fill in and pop in their pocket ready to talk about. We know that worries can come at unexpected times and there may not always be an adult present who they feel comfortable talking to, our Worry Pockets allow them to feel temporary relief from the worry by putting it in their pocket until they are able to talk to someone they trust.
 
Stress Busters
Stress Busters gives your children (and you!) some things to do when you’re feeling stressed. Plus we included a blank template for your child to explore their own stress management techniques
 
Flip the Thought
Challenge unhelpful, critical or intrusive thoughts with this fun CBT-themed resource and thought reframing activity. Using the visual element of flipping a pancake, this gets your children thinking about how they can flip a thought from unhelpful to helpful.
 
I’m Bored!
Boredom is actually good for children – it inspires creativity and develops imaginations, but for us adults, keeping little minds occupied can be hard work! Next time your children say they’re bored, why not give them this worksheet to do?
 
My Capacity Cone
While you might be familiar with the capacity cup, we believe that ice cream brings a more enjoyable summer-themed twist! The Capacity Cone is designed to help your child feel in control of stress – helping them to recognise when their stress is becoming unmanageable and when they need a bit of help.
 
Invite your child to jot down all their stressors in the cone. As the cone starts to fill up, it serves as a reminder that it’s time to employ some stress management techniques.
You can combine this with our new Stress Busters resource to introduce some fun stress management techniques and use the worksheet to explore some of their own.
 
The Worry Warrior
The Worry Warrior loves to fight your child’s worries! This activity is all about helping children manage worry by thinking of three ways to ‘fight’ the worry when it appears. This can also work as a fun visualisation technique where children can imagine their Worry Warrior coming to fight their worry away.
 
Anxiety Armour
Help children and young people to recognise their anxiety triggers and how anxiety affects them in this new resource. Just like armour was used to protect warriors in battle, we want your children to use our armour resource to protect them when they feel anxious. This resource works by exploring anxiety triggers and the body’s response to anxiety, helping children to become more self aware.
 
This resource also asks your child to write down things that help them when they feel anxious and things that don’t, so that they know what to do when their symptoms start appearing.
 
Bonus activity: When your child feels anxious, they can close their eyes and imagine their anxiety armour wrapping around them, bringing instant relief and calm. Their anxiety armour helps them feel safe and as though they can accomplish anything!
 
Summer Mindfulness
Using our senses to explore the world around us is a great way to feel calm and grounded. Connecting to the environment and feeling present in the moment in this way can give a huge boost to your child’s wellbeing. Plus it gives you a fun activity to enjoy outside during the wonderful Summer weather!
 
Mario Mushroom Emotions
You loved our Super Mario Affirmation Colouring Sheets so we thought we’d bring you some more gaming themed resources! Our Mushroom Emotions check in is all about helping your child explore their emotions and communicate how they feel.
 
Mindful Gaming Resources
We know from personal experience that children feel all sorts of emotions whilst gaming – a lot of them unhelpful! Help children manage their emotions whilst gaming and explore and learn about their emotions using our Mario-themed gaming sheets.
