Back to School Box
The perfect box for any little one starting the adventure of a new school year.
An activity like baking can be the perfect thing to create a safe space for talking through big feelings. When children are fully engaged in an activity like baking, their brains are in a state of executive function, which facilitates learning and allows connection. When little hands and yours are busy in the mixing bowl, rolling dough, cutting out biscuits, filling cake tins or whisking eggs, time flies. Both they and you are absorbed and present which results in better emotional regulation, a greater sense of enjoyment in what they are doing and personal control. When children feel like this they are more likely to engage in meaningful conversation and feel confident talking about the big things in their world. So if you feel like your little one is feeling a bit wobbly about school starting, friendships, a particular subject or struggling with separation anxiety whip out the mixing bowl.
