Calm Down Strategies Activity

Calm Down Strategies Activity



Description: Once a child understands basic emotional vocabulary and is able to identify when he is mad or upset, it’s helpful to teach him some strategies that he can use or ask for to calm back down. Every child is different in the types of activities that calm them.  But the most helpful thing we can do is to teach them strategies that they can use to calm themselves down without needing someone else to help.  For this activity, you’ll help the child practice a variety of calming strategies that don’t require another person.  Keep in mind that deep breathing, sensory input, and movement are all great ways to calm a body.  You can use our pack of self-calming strategies by clicking the link below, or make up your own!  The goal is to teach the strategies when the child is calm so that you can then prompt the child to use them when he’s not.
