Encouraging kids: I have a dream

This activity is just wonderful. Don’t we all have dreams. Things that we long for or wish can happen. Sometimes these can seem out of reach, or we may hope for materialist things. Deep down we all have dreams for our lives, our families and for ourselves. Encouraging kids to have hopes, dreams and aspirations is essential. It is so crucial that they are working towards something for the future, something they hope for, something they dream of.

It is these goals that spur them on and encourage them to be anything that they want to be. This is why we have a lovely printable from our collaboration on kids mental health with Leanne Brown, author of the book Daniel’s Dream. Visit her website for more resources and check out her book as well. Get the full digital resource pack too (£9.50)!

Don’t forget to sign up for the series – so whenever you have seen this, you get access to the other articles!

We like giving you a peek of the worksheet that you will be downloading, so take a look at the worksheet here.

Encouraging kids activity

This activity is perfect for any child to do. This can be done individually, in small groups or in larger groups. There are opportunities for this to be done at home and in an education-based setting. It is a great activity to see a child complete and see what dreams they have but it is also great to have conversations.

Conversations about why they have wished for certain dreams, what hopes they have for their futures, what they hope for their families and the world around us. It is both empowering and inspirational to see what the children of today are dreaming for in a world that is yet unwritten, yet unknown and yet untold. This is their time to write their own stories, follow their own dreams and help create the future.

We have many more mental health resources on our site but this series is also available, so do take a look and find some of the resources that we have for you.

We hope that you like this printable and hope that you can use it with your kids.
