There is no doubting that the way we speak to, and about, ourselves directly affects how we feel. Affirmations can help children learn to speak kindly to themselves and to believe in their own abilities, and this collection of 55 powerful, mindful affirmations for kids – available as printable cards – has been specifically developed to do just that.
Affirmations are positive statements that can help to promote self acceptance, belief in one’s own strengths, positive mindset, and they can provide a positive step towards making changes to habits or achieving goals. The affirmations included in our printable affirmation cards are linked to important core values such as kindness and confidence, with strong themes of
- growth mindset
- emotional intelligence
- positive thinking
- self acceptance, and
- friendship and family relationships.
They have been developed with tweens and young teens in mind, around the age of 8 to 14 years. There are 55 positive affirmation cards included in the set with each including a clear statement of affirmation and an engaging animal graphic, and one instruction card.
How to use the Mindful Affirmations for Kids Cards
The cards are simple to use towards positive change. We suggest you;
- Choose one affirmation card for the week.
- Say the affirmation to yourself as you wake up or as you brush your teeth in the morning, and then repeat it again at nighttime.
- Say the words to yourself 8-10 times and believe the words to be true.
- Think about what this affirmation means in your life. What does it;
– Feel like in your body?
– Look like in action?
– Sound like when you communicate with others?
- Commit to one action that you could make that day to show your affirmation in action and remind yourself of this action each morning and night.
The cards can also be used as lunch box notes or bookmarks, prompting children to revisit their chosen affirmations regularly.
