If you’re looking for activities to support your children’s wellbeing, try some of the ideas below from Teaching Packs. These are free on their website. They encourage children to think about their achievements, talents, relationships, diet, sleep and activity, as well as the world and people around them!
- Have a phone, video or in-person conversation with a person you haven’t spoken to in a while. Ask them how they are. What have they been doing recently? Share what you have been learning about recently and tell them about events in your life.
- Write a letter to a friend, telling them about things that have been going well for you recently. Could you include some photos or draw a picture for them?
- Think of a gift that you could give to somebody. Can you draw or make something that will make them smile?
- Get some slips of paper and write something nice about a friend and then give it to them. Could you make similar ‘compliment slips’ for everyone in your family or your class?
- Make a friendship bracelet using some string, wool, beads and other small items.
- Make a certificate for a friend to celebrate one of their special qualities or an achievement.
- Complete a ‘random act of kindness’ by doing something nice for a friend or a stranger anonymously (if possible).
- Write a thank you letter to somebody to show your appreciation for a gift or something that the recipient has done for you.
- Drink some water. Keep a record of how much water you are drinking each day.
- Keep a sleep diary over the course of a week to check if you have been getting enough sleep
- Think about times when you have been brave. How did you overcome your fears?
- Write a letter to yourself in a week, month or year. What goals do you hope to achieve by the time you read your letter again?
- Think about something that might be worrying you at the moment. Make a comic strip in which you overcome those worries. How did you do it?
- Keep a record of your wellbeing each day. Make a note of how you are feeling, things you might be thinking about and things you are looking forward to. There are some templates for this activity in our Wellbeing Pack.
- Give a person (or a tree) a hug! How does it make you feel?
- Ask somebody for help with something that has been troubling you recently.
- Make a ‘Fab File’ to collect work and pictures that you are proud of, certificates that celebrate your achievements and cards from people that you care about. You could then look at it whenever you might be feeling low.
- Make a list of all of the things that you have achieved in the past week / month / year. Think of a way to celebrate your amazing progress!
- Make a list of all of the things that you are grateful for. Could you show these on the petals of a flower drawing or the coloured stripes of a rainbow painting?
- Make a timeline to show the main events in your life and to highlight when you achieved new things for the first time (e.g. your first steps, first day at school and the first time you wrote your own name).
- Keep a food diary to review the food and drink that you consume each day. Which parts of your diet are the most healthy?
- Think about your favourite meal. Is it linked to a special celebration (e.g. a birthday or a religious event)? Work with others to make a display that shows everyone’s favourite foods.
- Learn how to bake or cook something. Could you make a healthy treat or a new meal?
- Try star gazing. Look outside at night and search for the stars. Can you make any pictures or patterns with them?
