Therapy Activities for Kids
Therapy Activities for Kids
In this interactive activity, therapists engage kids in exploring body signals using specially designed cards that depict 52 different body sensations.
From the flutter in their stomach to the pressure in their head, these cards serve as a guide for kids to recognize and interpret their own physical messages.
These cards expand the emotional vocabulary of children and teens by encouraging the use of a visual language to express themselves.
The Body Map included in Body Signals provides a creative space for kids to map out their unique body sensations, encouraging self-awareness.
And– the Body Map can be personalized! Kids can add their own hairstyle, making the map truly their own.
By tuning in to their internal messages, kids develop a greater understanding of the ways their body communicates with them.
It’s like having a secret decoder ring that collects body sensations and sends them to their brain, helping answer the question, “How do I Feel?”
