I bought these Affirmation School cards as I am a key worker and my 6 yr old daughter is going into school at the moment but things are quite strange for her. She loves getting a card out each morning before we set off and often wants to pull out more than one. They have put a smile on her face and have given us something to talk about on the way to school. I bought the Table Talk game as well, which I actually look forward to playing!
Affirmation and Mindfulness Cards - boost an anxious child's confidence on school days
Product Description and Benefits
Do you have a child you want to help feel less anxious? All children can be anxious at times; it’s a normal part of life as they grow and develop their resilience to cope with life’s ups and downs. Some children are more naturally anxious than others and can become worried about situations that don’t affect other children. Starting school for the first time, returning after a school holiday or simply an unusual event taking place during the school day can be difficult for some children. There are many ways to help an anxious child develop greater resilience and one of those is to work on positive thinking and mindfulness.
These 30 cards are designed for Primary School aged children to promote positivity and mindfulness about their school day while prompting discussion and having some fun! Any child will soon enjoy pulling a card from their bag at breakfast time and discovering the message contained within; what a fab way to start the day and feel happily held. Alternatively, they can be used as lunchbox notes for that extra reminder to your child that they are held in mind when you are apart.
The fonts have been specially chosen for being warm and friendly with simple generous letter shapes and counters that are rounded and open. These are more pleasing to the young eye and easier to read than other more angular or rectangular fonts. The colours on the back of the cards have been specially chosen too as each colour has its own wavelength which ultimately stimulate chemicals in the eye, sending messages to the pituitary and pineal glands near the brain. For example, green is known for nurturing relaxation. Emotions and feelings are affected by colour without thought. Each card also has a little symbol to aid conversation and add to the joy of choosing a card.
The cards come in a tactile Fairtrade drawstring bag for little hands to delve into and the cards are folded so they can be opened up to reveal a message. Each card when folded measures 86mm x 55mm and is made from 300gsm satin card, printed on both sides.
