You might like to prepare a calm down space in your home – a safe space to calm little bodies when they’re feeling overwhelmed by big emotions. A space like this is perfect for allowing your child the space to self-regulate and process big, tricky feelings.
When a child is feeling upset or even angry, they can’t process what we say to them because their body is in fight or flight mode. Rather than a traditional ‘time out’ space, something like a calm down spot can give your child a safe space to de-escalate and calm their little bodies. The resources in this pack will arm you with all the tools you need to set up this space and explore feelings in a fun, age-appropriate way.
“The boys are loving this months play pack!!!! Having three boys……we have some pretty major emotions in our houses the boys have always been very good at identifying and naming their emotions but we are particularly loving the calm down box and corner. It gives the boys a tool to be able to help themselves regulate their emotions. Can’t wait to keep playing!” – Kelly
When we can explore themes like emotions and feelings through play, we are meeting our children where they’re at. We can talk about things that make us feel happy and sad and use those experiences to connect with our little learners in a safe and engaging way.
Happy playful learning!
