Worry Jar

A worry jar can be incredibly helpful for children to dump/write down their worries. This is a worksheet which could be laminated and children given their own dry wipe pen to write down worries and then wipe them away once they are dealt with. You might find that just writing them down gives them that outlet to forget their worry or it is a way of dealing with it. You can obviously go around the children and ask if they need help with that particular worry or if they have a plan/strategy for dealing with that worry.

I have also included a label with this download in case you would like to make an actual worry jar. The label is editable, as in you can add their names to the label.

"I am new ELSA practitioner and this site has been a huge help to me. Debbie is helpful too; I've messaged her on occasion to ask for advice and she has always been quick to reply with supportive ideas and suggestions. She has also, on request, adapted resources to suit the young age group I work with. Amazing!"
