See what’s new to the Be Happy Hub!
Each week we upload new resources to help with your child’s wellbeing. This week we bring you a mix of new activities – from Emotion Bingo to worksheets to help your children with difficult emotions such as grief.
 
Summer Scavenger Hunt – Summer has arrived and what better way to enjoy the nice weather than completing a mindful scavenger hunt? Scavenger hunts are a great way to ground children and help them to engage their senses to take in the world around them – plus they’re great fun! However, we do have to issue a disclaimer to say not to complete this scavenger hunt outside during the next week, which may see record temperatures of 30-40 degrees across the UK.
 
Emotion Bingo – We’re always looking for fun ways to bring emotional learning into every day play, this game will help children identify and learn emotions using our popular emotion faces. For 2-4 players.
 
How are you Tweeting? – This fun worksheet helps children to use their imaginations – and there are no wrong answers! Have your child think about what each bird is feeling or saying and write this in the speech bubbles. This is a great activity to get them thinking about facial cues and expressions. Emotional resources for kids should be fun – and this one is a hoot!
 
Remembering my Pet / Loved One – We’ve had a lot of requests for grief resources recently and we know how hard and sensitive this topic can be. Discussing grief with children and teaching children about grief can be extremely upsetting. Our new worksheets aim to help children think about their grief and discuss how they’re feeling. One of the ways we can cope with grief is by writing a letter to the person we miss, we have taken this activity and made it into a child-friendly resource. The Feelings Check In also allows you to see how your child is feeling. This worksheet can be used regularly, as they may fill in the prompts differently each time, this allows you to track how they’re feeling as time goes on.
 
5 Sense Doodle Pads – You know we love anything that engages all our senses. Using our senses during periods of heightened emotions can calm and ground us. When children feel anxious or worried, these doodle sheets can help. What do we mean by grounding? Grounding allows us to reconnect with the earth, this means that we are more present within our bodies and the space around us. This helps to ease feelings of panic or despair. Practising grounding techniques regularly has been shown to have many benefits, such as improved mental health, circulation, reduced stress levels, improved sleep and even decreased levels of pain and inflammation.
 
Healthy Habits – Help children learn some of the techniques to wellbeing by having them cut out the Healthy Habit statements and placing them under the correct headings. After they’ve done this, have them think about which statement they may need to work on – can they make an action plan to improve this area?
 
Monster Affirmations – Perfect for a positive, feel-good start to the day! Simply download, cut out and recite our monster affirmations with your child. There are many ways you can use positive affirmations with your child – whether it’s by saying them out loud together, displaying them in their bedroom or putting them in their lunchboxes!
 
We will also be uploading our new Separation Anxiety Pack – ‘Gaining My Independence’ over the next few days which is for older children age 8-11. This pack will help children understand what it means to be independent and why their independence is important, as well as lots of activities to help them find their own independence. Keep a look out for this launching soon!
