When it comes to young people’s emotional development, there is no skill more important than self-regulation. As a result of children’s immature nervous system, as well as their developing prefrontal cortex (the part of the brain responsible for emotional control), most often lack the skills that they need to regulate their big feelings -- (if we are being honest, adults are still developing this skill too!)
Our Finger Tracing Calming Cards are designed to help support young people when they are experiencing heightened states. These cards can be used as a tool to help children to calm down, develop self-awareness, and practice mindfulness. Through regular use, these cards can help young people to become better at slowing down and managing their big feelings.
How to use:
Find a quiet and calming space. Pick a card and use your finger to trace the line in the shape. Continue to do the same with the other shapes while focusing on taking deep belly breaths.
