This simple activity will show children how to reframe their thinking around a negative situation, and look for positive ways to view the situation.

We all have negative thoughts and may get into patterns of negative thinking.

In times of distress, these may occur more frequently, and it is easy to be self-critical and focus on the negative thoughts. Sometimes we might catastrophise a situation, making it seem worse than it really is, or we might blame ourselves for things out of our control.

This resource may be a useful tool for children to use once they have returned to school after the coronavirus lockdown.
