Top five activities for young people and families

During the summer of 2020, our lockdown resource library was a great hit among the young people and families we work with. So we thought it would be a great idea to put together a pack of some of our favourites as an easy to share pdf.

The activities can be completed by young people at home or in school – from creating superheroes based on a friend or family member, to creating exciting narratives with story stones. And if you like this, you can find even more resources in our lockdown library.

This also forms part of our toolkit for schools for Children’s Mental Health Week.

3. Story stones. Story stones are fun to make and can be used in a variety of storytelling activities or games.

4. Create an alternative journal. Why not try out some of these neat alternatives on how to write, draw or capture what’s going on in your life?

5. Improve your drawing skills. For any budding sketchers out there, Our Time has gathered a collection of fun ways to warm up and develop your drawing abilities.
