The Bookshelf of Happiness
Did you know that books have the ability to make us feel happier? It’s a fact! Reading allows us to relate to characters just like us, help us to feel less lonely and can even help us solve problems more efficiently. If you have a child who LOVES reading and who is their most content with their nose in a good story, have them create their own Bookshelf of Happiness. Fill in the prompts on the books, then cut out and stick to the bookshelf. This activity can support your child’s mental health by helping them to realise how powerful books are on their emotions and tasking them to think of all the wonderful books they have read. Feel-good vibes guaranteed!
 
My Book-et List
Encourage more reading with your very own book bucket list – or a ‘book-et list’! Have fun filling this out with your child then ticking off the books as they read them. When the book-et list is complete, ask your little one to reflect on which book they enjoyed the most. But don’t stop there – you can print this resource as many times as you wish so there is always a book on the horizon!
 
Design a Book Cover
This activity engages your child’s imagination and encourages creativity by asking them to design a book cover – it can be a book they have made up, a book about their life or a book about their happiest moment. Don’t forget to come up with a title too!
 
This is Your Life
A simple, feel good activity that asks your child to think of all their happiest and memorable moments and draw or write them in their book of life.
 
Book Emoji Flashcards
We know you love a themed flashcard and World Book Day is no different! Here are 12 fun book-themed emoji flashcards for our younger minds this World Book Day. Simply print, cut out and use daily.
 
My Mind Glasses
In this activity, any child can be a wizard… these Mind Glasses are super special glasses, they allow your children to see into their minds! Can they draw or write what’s on their mind in the glasses?
 
What else is new?
 
Train of Thought
Help your children track intrusive, anxious or escalating thoughts with the Train of Thought. This activity helps children to recognise how thoughts spiral by tracking an intrusive or upsetting train of thought from the first thought through to the point they became upset. We’ve provided an example below to show you how easy it is for thoughts to get away with us, can your child try to stop the thought in its tracks next time?
 
The Zebra of Zen
This is the Zebra of Zen, he feels calm when… fill in the prompts and see if this worksheet highlights some of your child’s triggers.
 
Astronaut Emotions
The perfect resource for budding astronauts! Our space-themed resources have been really popular recently and we know that lots of little children love looking up to the sky. If your little one fancies themselves as a future astronaut, use this activity to have them think about how they’d feel in certain scenarios. From eating freeze dried foods to spotting an asteroid in their path – engage your child’s imagination and help them learn about their emotions at the same time.
 
This week’s FREE resource! – For Mailing List subscribers only
My Mindful Story
This fun story themed activity helps your children to feel grounded and relaxed, whilst engaging their senses and their imaginations.
 
Directions: When we are mindful, we are more in tune with the world around us. This can help us feel calm. Ask your children to pick five objects from their immediate surroundings using their senses – something they can see, smell, hear, taste and touch. Can they write a story using the things they have chosen?
