Routines, circles of control, digital detox and more coronavirus activities
Over the coming weeks Red Cross will be sharing new resources for children and young people (aged 7 to 18) to do at home during the coronavirus crisis.
All the free, online activities will be linked to the kindness calendar and will:
- encourage simple acts of kindness
- build resilience
- connect the whole family and the community
- have creative and quick ideas for learners
- cover topics including first aid, preparedness, wellbeing and empathy
Red Cross welcome parents to sign up for email updates. They also offer a dedicated coronavirus teaching resource page.
Here’s a summary of this week’s new activities from the Red Cross :
- Digital for good – learners can consider how they’re using technology and how it can be used with kindness.
- Create a routine – sticking to a routine can help you feel more in control. We provide tips on how to create one and their benefits.
- Circles of control – thinking about what you can and can’t control helps you to stay resilient and be kind to yourself. This quick activity helps you reflect on your goals.
- Colour and share your kindness – colour in the Red Cross museum poster encouraging people to wash their hands, maintain distance or cover their coughs and sneezes.
- Reflection – spend time celebrating your or others’ kindness.
This is just a taster of this week’s activities. Don’t forgot to keep encouraging your child to think of new ways to be kind as kindness will keep us together.
