For younger children approaching the idea of mental health and wellbeing can be a daunting thought. Start very simply through exploring emotions, naming and identifying them. 

  • You could do this by pulling different faces in the mirror and talking about the emotion e.g. a happy face, sad face, angry face etc.

  • Try using the emotions images to identify emotions.

  • Watch the video for The Colour Monster by Anna LLenas. Talk about the colours and the emotions.
