A lovely set of 52 strength cards suitable for any age child from 4 or 5 up to 16+.

Strengths are for me the absolute basis of self-esteem. There is so much you can do with a set of strength cards. Some ideas:

  • In a group ask one child to sit in the centre of the circle and ask the children to choose 5 strengths that represent the child.
  • Ask the child to pick someone they admire. What strengths does that person have?
  • Lay the cards facedown and ask the child to pick a card. Do they know anyone with that strength? Discuss the strength and what it means. How does that person show that strength?
  • Use the strength cards as affirmations by adding ‘I am’ to the strength. ‘I am kind’, ‘I am caring’, ‘I am helpful’. Repeat daily.
  • Pick one strength card and decide how you are going to use that strength today, tomorrow, next week or in the future.
  • If the child has a problem. Which strength might help him or her to overcome that problem? Choose one or two useful strengths.
  • Ask the child to make a list of all their friends then ask them to place a strength card next to each friend’s name.

I have also included an example lesson plan and supporting worksheets.

"Such a wide range of resources to choose from - always something that can be used for different ages and situations. I have used so many and return to them time and time again. They are all super, but my favourites are the actual programmes that run over several sessions - for example the Super Girl Group. So easy to follow, it provides great confidence to allow you to really engage with the group rather than worry about what to do next. Brilliant."
