By assembling the kit and adding items that provide comfort or lift their spirits, children gain a sense of control over their mental health and develop crucial self-regulation skills. This resource prompts children to cut out various items and write their responses to the corresponding prompts on the back. Once decorated and assembled, the first aid kit becomes a tangible reminder and accessible resource for times of emotional need.
