Remember its not too late to order a book from Amazon – if you do then please message me and I’ll share a few extra days with you to tide you over until you get your delivery! Read More

DAY 3

Indoor Activity – Paper Chains

 Time to get some coloured paper or old/ cheap Christmas paper (not the one Santa will use). You could decorate white paper with shapes or Christmas images and use this (fully homemade!)

  • Cut into strips about 2cm wide and 20cm long
  • Then either use a glue stick or sticky tape and join the two ends together to make the first loop
  • Thread the next strip through the loop and join the two ends together to make a chain
  • Keep going until your chain is long enough for your needs (across the window, mantelpiece room, up the stairs)
  • Attach to the ceiling/wall/furniture as desired

  

Outdoor Activity – Pebble

  • Find a pebble and decorate with a Christmas theme or characters
  • Cover with a varnish to protect it (clear nail polish or glitter nail polish works well)
  • Write something on the back and then go for a walk and hide it somewhere for someone to find.
  • On Facebook there is a local site called #shropshirerocks (most counties have them) so if you write this hashtag on the rock you can see if someone finds it and where it’s re-hidden or goes on its own travel

  

Calm Activity – Story Massage

 

Today we’re going to do “twinkle, twinkle little star” as a back massage. This is a technique called story massage and simply involves linking hand movements on the back and the words of the story.

Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star

 

Do finger patting all over head, shoulders and back Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star
Place hands on shoulders How I wonder what you are
Draw a circle on the back Up above the world so high
Draw a diamond on the back Like a diamond in the sky
Finger patting  all over head, shoulders and back Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star
Hands on shoulders again How I wonder what you are

 

This is a lovely thing to do with your child. Think of baby massage, it’s such a fabulous bonding tools as the feel good hormone cortisol is released for both mother and child – the same happens in story massage.

Once you’ve done it with your child then they might like to give you a massage too.

Ask your child if they’d like a massage before you start. Below is an idea, but do what feels natural for you.

 

Gratitude Exercise

Don’t forget to spend a few minutes with your child and share something that you are grateful, glad about, enjoyed during that day.

 Today I am grateful for….

Today I am glad about …

Here we are on day two – here is the daily information on

Advent Countdown

DAY TWO

Indoor Activity – Letter Santa

  • Letters have to be with Santa by the 8th Of December in order to get a free reply
  • Make sure your address and child’s name is clearly written.
  • Ensure address is clear on envelope and stamped
  • Remember to post the letter so it arrives before the 8th December
  • You will receive a free reply from the man himself

 

 

Address:

Santa/Father Christmas

Santa’s Grotto

Outdoor Activity – Bird Feeder

  • To make a cardboard bird feeder, cut a star out of corrugated cardboard
  • Make a hole and thread a ribbon to hang it from
  • Spread it with peanut butter and then sprinkle bird seeds over it
  • Hang in the garden for the birds to enjoy
  • You could pre-cut extra cardboard stars so they are quick to make and hang each day

 

Calm Activity – First Star Visualisation

 Close your eyes and lie comfortably, snuggle with a blanket to stay cosy. Imagine you are lying in the garden looking up at the sky. It’s beginning to go darker as the sun starts to set for the night. You are looking for the first star of the night so you can make a wish.

 

  • You notice the moon starting to come out, the light blue of the day changing to a deep indigo blue. You notice a twinkle up above you. Was that the first star? You scan across the skyline once more and are drawn to a slight twinkle. As you look at it, you realise that this is indeed the first star. As you watch the sparkle grow to be a bright white light, you make your wish. Say it to yourself now – as when you see the first star in the sky you can always make a wish. You look back up at the sky and notice other stars are beginning to appear now. You saw the first and made your wish.

 

  • Wiggle your toes, stretch your legs and wiggle your fingers. Then when you are ready open your eyes. I wonder if your wish will come true.

 

Gratitude Exercise

Each day spend a few minutes with your child and share something that you are grateful, glad about, enjoyed during that day. Try and share 3 things each. It can be cuddles, activity, food and more. Simple things are perfect – doesn’t have to be seeing Santa or buying a present.

1st Day of Advent – Tips for Calm

If you follow me on Facebook you’ll know I’ve written a book called “Balance and Calm Toolkit for Christmas Calm”.

So I thought I’d share day 1 for you – in case your book hasn’t been delivered 🙂

Advent Countdown Day 1

 

 

Indoor Activity

 

Baking and Decorating Cookies

 

This is a quick recipe to make biscuits which can be decorated with either icing tubes or plain water icing with sprinkles. Let your little one help with weighing and tickling the butter into the flour

 

Measure out with your little one:

 

Fridge Cookies: makes approx. 50

 

–  250g plain flour

–  1 teaspoon baking powder

–  125g butter (cut into small cubes)

–  175g caster sugar

–  1 beaten egg

–  1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

 

  • Sift flour with the baking powder in to a bowl.
  • Then rub the butter into the flour/ baking powder, so it looks like breadcrumbs
  • Add in sugar
  • Add in beaten egg with vanilla extract. Then mix to a smooth dough
  • Make the dough into a cylinder shape and wrap in cling film or foil.
  • Chill for 6-8 hours
  • Lightly grease baking sheets
  • Slice into thin discs and bake in a preheated oven at 170°C fan for 10-12 minutes, until golden
  • Cover the dough and store in fridge for another day’s baking

 

When cool you can decorate the biscuits – snowflakes, snowmen, Christmas pudding or presents or anything you love!

 

 

Outdoor Activity

 

Go for a Walk

 

Go for a walk where you can have several options:

 

  • Look for a branchy stick that you could hang homemade decorations on (even spray/paint gold or white)
  • Look for pinecones for another project later in the advent coutdown
  • Create a “can you spot” list before you go for each person to tick off (e.g. fir tree, school road signs, stop sign, bird, robin, dog, cat, bobble hat, person wearing glove). Add in anything you know is likely to be seen.

 

 

Calm Activity

 

Stories

 

  • Collect all your favourite story books and get a blanket for everyone
  • Get all of your Christmas stories (or movies) in one place so you can read them together. Create a story corner in the room or on the sofa
  • Sit and snuggle and read together
  • Maybe have one of the biscuits you decorated earlier J

 

Calm Activity

 

Visualisation

 

  • Have a good shake of your body, arms and legs whilst standing up.
  • Jump up and down to release any surplus energy
  • Lie down together on your back (so they can copy you)
  • Use a blanket if you want to, to be super warm and cosy
  • Wiggle fingers and toes
  • Take a deep breath in and out to relax. Notice how your tummy rises and falls with each breath
  • Close your eyes and imagine the bed/sofa you are lying on is hot toast and you are butter
  • Imagine that you are melting into the bed/sofa as you relax
  • Can you feel your legs melting and your back becoming part of the bed/sofa?
  • Feel the warmth of the toast warming your head and neck and arms, as they relax more and more
  • When you are ready open eyes and wiggle your fingers, toes and nose
  • How did your body feel? Nice and warm and relaxed?

 

 

Gratitude Exercise

 

Each day spend a few minutes with your child and share something that you are grateful, glad about, enjoyed during that day. Try and share 3 things each. It can be cuddles, activity, food and more. Simple things are perfect – doesn’t have to be seeing Santa or buying a present.

Simple Tools to Support Children’s Wellbeing – Visualisations

1 Benefits of visualisations

What is meditation?

It is a practice to focus and relax & calm the brain.It can be as simple as relaxing, closing your eyes and concentrating on your breathing for a few minutes (as the kettle boils).

What is visualisation and how does it differ from meditation?

Visualisation is doing meditation but focusing on building an image or visual experience in your mind. It focuses the chattering, untrained mind so is ideal for beginners or children. It also allows you to experience emotions during the relaxation. It is often a way to review situations and images and observe how we feel and react rather than suppressing the emotion  and holding onto it.

Benefits for Children:

  • The brain neurons form complex connections in different areas of the brain – neuroplasticity (brain is shaped through regular exercise)
  • Cortisol (stress hormone) is reduced in the body and so the stress response reduces and the relaxation response increases and occurs
  • Endorphins (feel good hormones) are released creating a positive feel for the child
  • Relaxation response occurs
  • Children feel revived, re-energised afterwards
  • Children able to more able to manage emotions
  • Create positive imaginative ideas within the visualisation

Meditations for Children

These can be simple breathing exercises, or breathing in colour (such as a calm, peaceful blue). My favourite is the toast and butter example below. Check out my webpage for more examples

The Magic Parenting Button

Is there such a thing as a magic parenting button? Sometimes I wish there was, but the reality is that a combination of things can support you to be the parent you want to  be or to create the family calm you desire.

I find a combination of the following can really help me:

– For me the essential oil blend balance is number one (grounding and supportive and helps me emotionally when I’m beginning to climb up the negative emotions – helps bring me down and keeps me stable! Works on kids too. If you’d like a sample then please do just let me know and I’ll pop it in the post!

– Time out for me. Being a parent is hard work with little time off for good behaviour! Unless you have really good sleepers and are prepared to forgo some sleep yourself! So finding spots of time to do supportive relaxing tools (such as mini meditations, mindfulness or energy work). My book “Balance and Calm Toolkit for Frazzled Mums” has 160 tips & tools – all designed to take a couple of minutes.

– If communication is an issue or coping with change? If you would like some new tools to improve communication with your children? To gain some new tools to cope with change and build confidence for your child? Plus learn some tools to create family calm. Then the Positive Parenting Programme on Sat  15th July is for you! – check it out here for more information – http://romella.co.uk/courses/positive-parenting-programme/

If you’d like to create your own magic button then contact me and we can see which tools match your needs to create family calm. x

If you have any tips then I’d love to hear them!

yours calmly,

School Sports Day – Loved or Dreaded?

Do you love school sports day or loathe them?

Remember running with all your effort and coming close to last?

Or running the race and winning them all?

Ever do the parents race?

 

I can’t decide about them. Yes they are all inclusive and doing it in teams means they are involved in something bigger than just themselves. Yet some one will always come last, 2nd from last. Others will fall over or forget what they’re doing. Some are happy to run the three-legged race and giggle all the way and come last. Others don’t cope emotionally.

 

My son is one who find competition really hard. Last year he did a complicated “potato race” which involved running & collecting a ball running  back to the start and then running getting the next one & then finally running to the finish line. He was doing really well with the collecting (heading for a 1st place) but didn’t know or forgot to run to the finish line and so came last. He was upset, devastated in fact. He refused to go and sit back with his friends and stayed on my knee until the sports day was over. Even the cheering of the other parents just for him didn’t cheer him up. Losing is hard, especially with so many people watching you.

This year, I was thankful there was no running. Javelin (foam don’t panic!) and bean bag throwing. He was good at both but had a particularly good bean bag throw, he thought he was in with a chance. He came 5th out of 20 kids (did really well). He’d “held it together” for the whole event, behaved well and taken part in a positive way.

However, as he came out of school he burst into tears as he ran to me, as he’d only got 5th place and he’d really wanted to go on the podium. No matter how I said it was an excellent result and in the top 20% of throws, he wouldn’t have it.

Some children can enjoy the fun of the day, others you can see the strain of “keeping going” taking a toll on their emotions.

Bless him he held it together for so long, and as so often happens when they are in their safe place they relax and share their real emotions.

I can’t decide whether I like school sports day or swimming galas. We don’t put pressure on him, but emotionally he can really struggle.

Sports Day – Team Building – Competition? Good or Bad?

The jury’s out here – its all down to the child

Well Easter has passed and I know my kids and hubby munched through their eggs within days! I’ve still got one whole one – its not that I haven’t eaten chocolate but more that I want to savour the experience.

As much as I love to eat chocolate  – a lot – I also want to try and be mindful with the experience – savour the texture, melting sensation and taste.

So I’ve recorded this mindful chocolate egg experience so I can enjoy the experience once the eggs have all gone!

Enjoy!
