Calm Picture

Here is a great exercise you can do at home or in school to encourage children to feel calm and peaceful. Write the word CALM as large as possible and let your child colour in the word. They can add pictures of things that help them feel calm.  Let them use calming colours - anything to create an image of calm.  Tell children to stare at the picture and see how calm they can feel.  Then ask them to close their eyes and make the picture very small - like a postage stamp.  Tell children they can keep this little picture anywhere they like in their body - heart, head, and finger.  Whenever they are feeling stressed and anxious, they can look at their calm picture and feel calm. You might like to play to a Relax Kids while the children are colouring their Calm picture. Please pass it on and tell all your friends If you have found this blog helpful please pass it on to your friends, colleagues, schools and nurseries and help us help more families and schools.
