What you will do and learn:

In this activity, you will make a feelings fort, a quiet space where a child can calm down when they feel overwhelmed or feel a strong emotion. The child will learn that it is okay to have big feelings and that you will help them feel calm when they experience those big feelings. The child will also learn strategies to help themselves feel calm. They can take some time to get comfortable with blankets and pillows, do a quiet activity such as reading books, use a calming jar or practice other techniques to manage their feelings.
