Message in a bottle!

It’s been an emotional half term (it’s day three 😂😜😭). I’m hoping that this mindful, self esteem boosting activity will lift moods and provide a bridge from busy school to a restful evening (this will be some feat after a KS1 disco is thrown in!). Anyway…

I wrote seven lovely compliments down on different coloured bits of paper (go with what you’ve got, plain paper is fine, I just wanted a pretty picture!). I did bottles for both boys and made sure they both had the same but different comments, if that makes sense!

I have tried not to be overly goal orientated and talked instead about qualities such as kindness, thoughtfulness, perseverance and hard work. I have also sprinkled in lots of love.

I turned the compliments into paper aeroplanes and put them into a dry old soap bottle.

I’m hoping that getting them out will be a peaceful rather than frustrated activity, but wish I had put them all point facing out. I’ll have my tweezers ready 😂

I normally post once I’ve tried but I’m too excited about this one (read I’m a bit of a dork) so I will let you know how it goes in the comments 😀 UPDATE: They loved this one and I’ve done it again since. If you fancy this but don’t have a bottle spare maybe pop over to my “Little Stars” post.

Or if you want to get them talking try “Today’s Post” or this happy, chatty talking activity.
