Activities for half term to help learn Kindness and Positivity with My Busy Bots.
This week has been Children’s Mental Health week (1st to 7th of February). We are still within the constricts of a third Lockdown and may well be for some time to come yet. The other day I shared some useful advice for supporting our children’s mental health and today I’d like to share some fun activities your children can do during the upcoming half term with My Busy Bots.
This years children’s mental health week theme has been Express Yourself.
Encouraging our children to find ways to share their feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through either art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make them feel good.
It’s a lesson which is important for our children to remember that being able to express themselves is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who they are, how they see the world in a way that can help them feel good about themselves.
My Busy Bots have released a new addition to the fun family collections they have. A fun and creative way to help keep our children busy away from screens and doing fun educational activities throughout the upcoming half term.
The new addition is aimed at teaching our children Kindness and Positivity, an opportunity for them to learn in a fun and creative way and also possibly take some of the half term stress from us parents too.
The New Kindness and Positivity booklet from My Busy Bots.
The new Kindness and Positivity booklet is packed with fun, encouraging activities and colouring pages for children to enjoy, away from screens and school work which will offer a much welcomed break during half term.
They can do them on their own, or with you – a nice way to open up conversations about how they are feeling. Pages can be coloured in, then torn out and hung up as positive reminders!
This booklet is ideal for children from about 6 years upwards and perfect for both girls and boys – created gender neutral, filled with all things happy!
– Booklets are A5 (148 x 210mm) and wire bound
– 25 pages of fun, including a colourful front cover
– Perfect as a refill for your Fun Folder Activity Pack
– £4.99 per booklet
