Separation Heart - ELSA Support for emotional literacy

Separation Heart

This is a separation heart to help with separation anxiety.

I wanted to write a poem for this to go alongside the heart.

The idea is that the parent and child read the poem together, cut the heart in half. Each colours in their bit and each keeps their bit safe and sound.

If the child feels anxious when separated they can take out their half heart and remind themselves that it is ok to have fun, sleep or play. When they get back together again they can put their heart back together.

I have tried to cover separation anxiety at bedtime as well as when the child is at school.

There are 4 colours of heart poem backgrounds and 4 hearts with mindful colouring so the child could choose before you print out.
