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

    I made these books for my ELSA group, they love them. One of the children also attends a group delivered by an outside agency, he took them with him to a session and they loved them too……. 🙂 Thank you.

    Fantastic resource, useful for a range of age groups. We have more children who are anxious and this is a great way to encourage ways to relax and have fun practising!

    These are fabulous, can’t wait to start using them I’ve also found reading your summary of the mindfulness chat really worthwhile and it has answered a lot of questions for me. Thank you
