Calm Down Cards
Here is the newest download from Your Therapy Source – Calm Down Cards. This is a wonderful collection of photographs with calming phrases to help children to calm down. You can download a free poster – Just Breathe.
This set of Calm Down Cards includes 30 full size photographs with calming phrases (11″ by 8.5″ page) and smaller size (4″ by 3″ cards). Print the full size cards or the smaller size cards. You could also laminate the smaller cards to place on a key ring to toss in a calm down kit. Children can simply use visual imagery with the photos to help them calm down. Another option is to view the photographs with calming phrases and music as a PowerPoint show on your computer, tablet or phone.
The full color photographs encourage children to use visual imagery to help them to calm down and return to a “ready to work” state. If you don’t want to print the Calm Down Cards, children can view the full size pages on the computer, tablet or phone.
