In today’s world, taking care of children's mental health and emotional well-being has never been so important! Crafting can have a positive impact on the well-being of children, whilst supporting cognitive and creative development.
Crafting is a form of relaxation that can help reduce the symptoms of stress and anxiety. It is well known that crafting activities can help to improve mood, increase happiness, and encourage a connection with yourself and others, all of which promote positive metal well-being and mindfulness practices. Furthermore, crafting can also provide a sense of accomplishment which in turn, can help to improve self-belief and confidence!
That’s why we want to support the positive mental health of our young people and have created a downloadable crafting booklet, focusing on activities to promote positive mental health and well-being! The booklet is ideal for use in the classroom or at home, to work through a series of activities that can help children to understand the importance of self-care, expression, and most importantly, encouraging dialogue about mental health topics.
