Learning to recognize and handle emotions, sort feelings, and release tension in appropriate ways are important skills for children to develop. Many times, they are unable to cope and think clearly during emotional disruptions. Carry these cards in a purse or backpack or leave them in a special calm down area to encourage self-regulation before big emotions become a meltdown!
This set of 14 cards has over 30 ideas to help calm down, plus two blank cards to add your own ideas or specific needs. Activities are simple and independent, allowing children to choose a method that works for them in the moment.
Each card is professionally printed on business card sized, glossy cardstock and placed on a binder ring to keep them handy and organized. Cards include ideas like: Take Deep Breaths, Exercise, Read a Book, Ask for a Hug, and more. Great for classroom use or a Calm Down Kit or sensory area.
Accessories in pictures are not included.
Our Calm Kits include a set of Calm Cards along with a variety of tools and items recommended on the cards.
