FREE COVID-19 Emotional Well-being support - FAMILY CARE PACKAGE
Sign up to our Members area to access the packs.
Recognising the stress the COVID-19 Pandemic has created for families, we produced digital Emotional Well-being packs designed for Primary school children. The packs contain lots of useful resources including: links to creative activities, relaxation music, physical exercise, mindfulness activities, nutrition information and self-care suggestions. This is not therapy but the packs do offer bitesize information about why these activities may help. We have included a variety of resources that can be printed or done online, so all you need is an internet connection.
Each week focused on a different animal and its associated symbolism to deliver an emotional well-being message using metaphor.
As part of the initiative, and in the hope of building an online community, we launched an online gallery. This showcases all your fantastic creative work in response to the care packs. If you have some artwork you would like featured, just email us a photo or scan of the work and we can include it in the gallery.
