24 Calm Down Activity Cards

Product Description

Our brain has lots of different modes that help to govern the way we think and behave. The majority of the time our brains will be in thinking mode and in which we are usually in a state of calm and we are able to rationalise. However, when danger is detected your brain will send the energy it normally uses for thinking mode to kick into instinctual mode instead. This causes all rationale and thought processing to temporarily go ‘offline’ – it doesn’t matter if you can speak 5 languages or recite Pie if you are in danger!

Instinctual mode is a healthy and important function of the brain for many reasons, but sometimes it will start up when there is no danger detected. Heightened emotions in children, for example, can cause it to activate. Sometimes our instinctual mode can become so overwhelmed it can even cause panic attacks. This is why teaching children calming strategies are really important so that when a child is feeling overwhelmed they are able to shift back into thinking mode and regulate their emotions.

This resource contains 24 activities for you to try with your child. You can write down reflections for each activity in the table provided. Scoring the activities in the table after you have tried them will help you to notice which techniques work best for your child.

Calm down cards are provided to print and laminate these can be provided to your child to act as visual prompts. Keep the cards in an accessible place along with some calming toys (have a look in the shop for some calming toys) and refer to the cards when you notice that your child's emotions are become heightened and they need help to regulate them. Be sure to praise your child if they use the cards without prompting.
