Some of these activities included in the 50 Activities to Promote Resilience in Young Children :
That’s My Name! - "Exposing children early to making personal connections through use of others’ names is a great way to begin promoting social and emotional development because it gives them a secure base to help them establish trust, feel attached, and know they are safe to explore and learn new things."
Family Show and Tell - "In this activity, your child will learn about the people in her life and her culture. this learning sets the stage for an appreciation of other families and cultures."
Individual Theme Kits - "When you take the time to learn about your child’s interests and plan for activities and play experiences that encourage these interests, your child learns that you are interested and tuned in to him. it sends a clear message to your child of caring, connection, and support. your child will be able to explore his interests in more detail, allowing his imagination to soar."
