Calming Kit Workshop
August 12, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$65
Fidgets have become quite popular- I’m sure your children have a collection of them. Did you know that collecting and using fidgets is not just a childhood faze? Many children need fidgets to self-regulate and manage their behaviour, but also to be able to focus and learn. Many, if not most children need to move their bodies in order for their brains to focus and engage with lessons at school.
Because of this, I have come up with a Calming Kit Workshop.
A calming kit contains visuals and tools to help children cope with their emotions during difficult times in a positive and safe way. These tools can empower children to independently resolve conflicts, self-regulate, and manage difficult emotions. Ideally, a calming kit should be used to help children identify, regulate and communicate emotions before any outburst; however, it can also be used to help de-escalate tantrums and overwhelming feelings. The calming kit can also be a great addition to a child’s homework space or it can be used at school as a collection of tools to support their learning.
During the workshop we will make the following items to add to your kit:
🐞 Stress ball
🐞 Glitter calming jar
🐞 Rain stick
🐞 Essential Oil Scented Playdough
