Colour and Create Your Own Coping Cards - Explore Calming Tools on the Go!

Our printable and personable Coping Cards is a creative and practical resource designed to empower children and teens with useful calming tools whenever and wherever they are. These colourable calm cards offer a fun and engaging way for children and teens to practise mindfulness and manage stress on the go. With 8 colourable calming actions and a blank version for personalisation, these cards provide customisable support for individual needs.


  1. 8 Colourable Calming Actions: Our coping cards feature 8 calming actions that children and teens can colour in, including deep breathing exercises, brain exercises, visualisation techniques and more. Each action is designed to promote relaxation and reduce stress in moments of anxiety or overwhelm.
  2. Customisable Blank Version: Recognising that everyone's coping strategies are unique, we've included a blank version of the coping cards for children and teens to add and create their own calming tools. This allows for personalised coping mechanisms that resonate with individual preferences and needs.
  3. Portable and Accessible: These coping cards are conveniently sized to fit in a pocket, backpack, or purse, making them easily accessible whenever and wherever they're needed. Whether at school, home, or on the go, children and teens can keep their coping cards close for instant support. You can laminate and keep handy on a keyring too!

How to Use:

  1. Download and Print: Download and print the Colour Your Own Coping Cards (Members only). Ensure each child or teen has their own set of cards for personal use.
  2. Colour In: Encourage children and teens to colour in the calming actions on the coping cards using their favourite colours. This creative process enhances engagement and ownership of the coping tools.
  3. Cut Out and Keep Close: Once coloured, children and teens can cut out the coping cards along the designated lines. Encourage them to keep the cards close at hand – in a wallet, pencil case, or on a keychain – for easy access during moments of stress or anxiety.
  4. Practice Mindfulness: Encourage children and teens to use their coping cards as prompts for practising mindfulness and relaxation techniques. Whether taking deep breaths or visualising peaceful scenes, these coping cards provide valuable tools for self-regulation and stress management.

The Colour Your Own Coping Cards offer a creative and practical solution for promoting mindfulness and managing stress in children and teens. By engaging in the calming actions and personalising their coping tools, children and teens can build resilience, self-awareness, and navigate challenging emotions with confidence and ease.
