The best skill you can give your child is the power of positive self-talk, self-confidence and a feeling of self worth. The Positive Affirmation Cards for Kids set by Creative Sprout will help your child develop mindfulness and reassure them that they are valued and important.
The Positive Affirmation Cards set contains 26 positive affirmation cards that are based on the idea that your child is loved and also includes confidence-building statements. Each positive affirmation card has been mindfully matched with hand-drawn illustrations to help children visualise each phrase or aid little ones who are still learning to read.
The affirmations cards have a special focus on kindness - not only to themselves but to others around them. Research shows mindful kids are more likely to be focused, calm and have the ability to create their own happiness, which are all essential parts of your child’s wellbeing and development.
The Affirmation Cards are designed and made in Australia. Each affirmation card is printed on an A6 size 350gsm card stock, with rounded corners and protective matt celloglazing for durability. They also come in a beautiful calico cotton drawstring bag for safekeeping.
We hope these cards instill a sense of mindfulness, confidence and resilience in your child.
Each set of Positive Affirmations Cards for Kids includes:
- 26 x affirmation cards
- 1 x calico drawstring bag
What are affirmations and why are they important?
Affirmations are statements that encourage a positive mindset, by challenging negative or unhelpful thoughts. There is even scientific evidence that shows repeating positive affirmations daily can help change negative thinking patterns to positive ones.
How could I use the affirmations cards as a mindfulness activity?
You can easily use these positive affirmation cards as a mindfulness activity. Begin by discussing emotions and ask your child if there was a time they would have needed to hear one of these phrases. Or perhaps there was a time they could have supported a friend or family member with these thoughtful words. Putting these cards into action in real-world scenarios reinforces mindfulness and compassion.
Another idea we have incorporated in our own home is a calm corner or 'chill out zone'. An inviting and inspiring safe space for our children to unwind when they need a break. These cards can hang on the wall or be kept inside a teepee tent or book shelf as a gentle reminder of how loved and important they are.
