Free wellbeing activities

These wellbeing activities for schools, children and families are based on the Skills for Life programmes. The children's activities are designed to help children process feelings, communicate effectively, cope with their anxieties and difficulties and deal with change and loss.

Children's Activities:

  • Can be downloaded or done with pen and paper
  • Designed for children aged three to nine and can be adapted for younger or older children and children with Special Educational Needs and disabilities
  • Include instructions for adults to complete with children

We also have a useful article and video on How to Talk to Children about Death.

And a video to help manage school transition from a social emotional perspective.
