Relaxation/calming activities for children

This set of cards was inspired by a Facebook group post where I asked ELSAs what they did for relaxation exercises in their sessions. The result is a set of 20 cards which could be printed, laminated and put on a key ring. Alone we are smart, together we are brilliant!

Another little sheet here which may help to calm an angry/anxious child. Download from here: 5 deep breaths
