Wellness day 2 grades K - 3 learning activities

These activities will help youth Learn about their values and strengths, and how they share them with the world. They can be done alone, but work best with friends over a video chat such as Skype, Zoom, Facetime etc.

Strengths build confidence and a positive attitude about who we are. Values are the principles we stand by when deciding what is right and wrong in the face of moral or social pressure.

Time: 20 – 25 minutes

Supplies:

  • Blank paper
  • Pencil
  • Markers
  • scissors
  • Tape
  • Popsicle stick (or ruler or anything long and sturdy)

Activity:

On a piece of blank paper, have your child draw themselves as a superhero. Ask them to think of their own strengths and skills as their super powers (for example: kindness, listening, speed, fort-building, math, etc.).

Have your child use another piece of blank paper to create a villain. Ask your child to name the superhero and the villain. Then ask them to tell you about the characters they create.

Next, have your child cut out their hero and their villain. Tape them to a popsicle stick. Act out the following situations with your child, or create your own:

  • The villain is turning all the rivers and lakes in Alberta into Jello.
  • The villain is filling the streets with syrup and all the busses are stuck.
  • The villain is eating everyone’s homework.

Next, challenge your child to act out the superhero to try to get the villain to become good instead of evil.​​

Time: 10 – 15 minutes

Supplies:

  • Construction paper cut into 1”x6” strips (you can use any paper that a child can easily write on)
  • Pencil or markers
  • Tape or glue

Have your child come up with a list of their strengths and write each one on a strip of paper. They could be physical strengths, mental strengths, social strengths, creative strengths - anything! Help them think of lots of strengths.

When they have written 10 – 20 strengths, have them tape or glue the ends of one together to form a ring. Then have them add another ring and make a chain. Make sure the strengths are visible on the outside so that your child can read them. When it’s finished, hang it somewhere your child will be able to see it often to remind them of the things they are good at.​
