The purpose of the 5 Pack is to help kids practice this happy habit in ways they learn best – through hands-on experiences, repetition, play and creativity.
Making Wishes is about using imagination, having dreams + being hopeful, all to build the brain’s circuitry for optimism. Here’s how each printable in this 5 Pack helps:
What do you WISH Grew on trees?
Gives kids a blank canvas to engage their IMAGINATIONS and MAKE WISHES, small or large, realistic or far-fetched.
My PERFECT DAY
Asks kids specific questions about their ideal day, like who would they be with and what would they be doing. When they IMAGINE a DREAM-day kids practice what psychology refers to as positive visualization.
Gets kids thinking about a superpower they would choose to have. This utilizes their IMAGINATION to build esteem, confidence and optimism about their capacities to cope and succeed.
I HAVE A DREAM
Has kids draw out a DREAM and encourages them to IMAGINE it each night before bed. This practices the conceive and believe parts of the conceive-believe-achieve triad, sending them off to sleep with a positive mindset to grow a healthy and happy brain.
