Children’s Wellbeing Cards Dr Maxine Therese 28 card deck and guidebook
The moment I opened the box I thought “My kids are going to LOVE these”, and I wasn’t wrong. Barely out of the box and my boys were keen to get their hands on them, drawn in by the delightful illustrations and vibrant use of colour. Children’s Wellbeing Cards have clearly been designed to capture the imagination of their target market. One major point of difference with these cards is their shape: instead of the usual square or rectangle-shaped cards, these are circular. It’s a quirky little detail that makes them fun to handle and has a tactile appeal that makes kids want to engage with them. Phrases include, “I am great: I honour the power within me” and “I am a super-hero: if I can dream it I can do it”. What I loved about these cards is their dual purpose: they are phrased so that they can be used as affirmation cards and they can also be used to do a two-card reading as well, to determine areas that might be out of balance with our children. Parents and children will love these: kids will be reassured by their positive messages and parents will find them an invaluable resource to help open up discussions and gain insights into the emotional wellbeing of their children.
