Our feelings diary

  • Partnership for Children have created a ‘feels diary’ for children so they can identify and understand emotions better. The activity sheet allows them to draw a picture and write down a sentence, and parents can talk to them about this.

Dealing with change

  • Partnership for Children have provided an activity for parents to do with children, which encourages the child to write down positive and negative changes they are dealing with. This allows opportunity for conversations on how to make them feel better as well as good things that are happening.
