Dear Wellfield family,

I hope you’re all doing well, and are remembering to enjoy the fun stuff, whilst working your brains out at home.

I noticed a post on one of my favourite sites that I use for emotional and social support, and thought it would be brilliant for all of you. I love using the ELSA site for lots of fun activities to help us with our emotions, and thought it might be a good idea to point you all in this direction too. There are some brilliant options that you would have to purchase, but there are tonnes of free activities to choose from too.

I thoroughly enjoy arts and crafts, as many of you will know, and find that it really helps us when opening up and talking about our feelings. I highly suggest you give it a go with your families at home. Sharing our feelings and emotions with those closer to us often makes us feel better in understanding we aren’t alone, that everybody experiences the same emotions that we do- and it’s okay to feel them.

In my last post I wrote about mindfulness activities, and within that I linked an activity using jars. I don’t know about you, but I have tonnes of jars lying around the house, and up-cycling them for different activities is a brilliant idea. If you don’t have any lying around, don’t worry, you could print out the worksheets, or just simply draw your own.

You can find the link to download all of the ideas here, but I’ve also attached my favourites below.

Hope you all have the most wonderful weekend with loved ones,

Miss Ridley
