Further Ideas and Resources 

Well-being/ Art therapy resources designed for use at home. 

In this uncertain time, positive mental health and wellbeing is more important than ever. There are so many ways in which art can help alleviate stress and anxiety related to the Covid-19 pandemic.


Why not have a go at some Art Therapy together at home. It is a good way to open up conversation with your child/children. 


It explains how you might approach some of the big feelings they might be experiencing. It has simple step by step instructions and explains how to take your child through the activities and what you might say.
