Self-care summer activity pack

This pack will help children create their own self-care plan for the summer holidays.

Selfcaresummer

Self-care is about what you can do to help yourself feel better or to keep yourself feeling good. 

With a range of creative activities, this booklet aims to help children identify strategies that help them should they feel low or anxious. It also signposts them and their families to additional support should they require it.

About #SelfCareSummer

Over the summer holidays, the Anna Freud Centre will be hosting #SelfCareSummer, highlighting some of the 90 strategies children and young people have said help them manage their mental health and wellbeing when they are feeling low or anxious.

The campaign will feature a range of voices including the Centre’s Young Champions, staff and students, and include Challenge Tuesdays where young people can share their artwork, photography, poems and crafts and share the activities which are helping them stay mentally healthy over the summer.

Schools can find more self-care resources here.
