24 Simple Self-Calming Tools

by Elizabeth Crary, M.S.

illustrated by Mits Katayama

What can kids do when they’re angry, anxious or frustrated? How about the “mad” dance? Or stringing beads? Or kneading bread? You’ll find dozens of different self-calming strategies explained in this 36-page guide. It describes six different soothing methods: physical, auditory/verbal, visual, creative, self-nurturer and humor.

The materials also discuss how adults can model the use of such self-soothing techniques as taking a warm bath, making a joke to defuse a situation or singing a silly song. Each calming method includes suggested activities for a range of ages, from toddler to adult. An ideal companion to the Self-Calming Cards.
