Emotion regulation involves recognising, managing and expressing emotions in adaptive ways, and allows children to learn, socialise and engage in daily activities.
Physical activity can help by triggering the release of neurotransmitters and reducing the impact of stress, both of which support emotional wellbeing. These movement cards teach children that fun moving activities can be used as a strategy to help express or regulate their emotions in a healthy way. You can choose from suggested activities that the whole family or class can participate in together, or come up with your own ideas.
Use a range of slow movements and relaxing music to bring some calmness to your day. Let’s float down a river and watch the world go by with Humphrey B. Bear today.
