Cognitive distortions can be difficult for adults to understand, so explaining them to children can at times feel impossible. These activities are created to help children (and adults) better understand thinking patterns that can cause them to get stuck. Unlike the stories this includes activities/ worksheet, 52 task cards and posters for each animal and a fact sheet about each distortion that includes definitions, questions, thoughts about the distortions.
