Use this printable and digital craft to teach and practice positive self talk and positive thinking. Kids and young adults will choose positive affirmations and thoughts and then write them on the paper flower craft to practice and refer to, as needed. Developing strong positive thinking and self-talk skills can be an effective coping strategy for a number of challenges, including anxiety, anger, depression, and more.

Digital and Printable!

A digital version is included for Google Slides! There are a few different versions to help meet students' individual needs. Students will move flower petals onto a flower and type in their positive self-talk statements!

A printable paper version is still included for students who need the hands-on experience.

An educator guide is included, with directions for teaching and following through with the lesson. Students will read a positive self talk worksheet that explains and gives examples of positive self talk. This craft also includes a list of 101 unique positive thoughts and affirmations for kids and young adults to read, practice, and choose from. Blank and several sample paper flower crafts are included.

How to Use

First, the educator will explain and introduce positive self-talk with the student worksheet. Next, students will read, practice, and select their top positive self-talk statements from the list or create their own. They will write those positive statements in the printable. Alternatively, students can use pre-made samples with positive self-talk already listed. After coloring and decorating, students will then cut out their flower craft and fold on the pedals. Let students practice their positive self-talk by opening up their flower craft. Partners and groups can spend time reading each others'. Encourage students to read each others’ positive affirmations. This can be a great activity in small groups to discuss strategies and identify how positive self-talk can help.

Best of all, kids can keep their Positive Self-Talk Flower Craft for times when they need extra support. They can use it to help them start the day on a positive note or when they are feeling anxious, stressed, sad, or angry. This is also a great activity to begin the year or complete during testing time to help with confidence and self-esteem.
