Self Esteem Boosting Activity; Little Stars

Background

A lovely self esteem boosting activity to do with your children.  When I saw these post it style stars in Asda’s stationary department for 50p I knew that they’d come in handy for something!

I’m not at my most positive or bouncy with a twangy back and extra “exuberant” kids.  Furthermore time is in short supply after a weekend away.  Anyway, I decided that this probably means a self-esteem boosting activity will be even more beneficial.  And I’m so glad I did! I feel a bit better already and am looking forward to the school run now!

To be honest, I even doubted that I could fill enough stars to warrant it (they’ve felt extra extra lately!).  But as with most things, once you get going, the ideas flow. (Check out my friend’s elephant foot mantra here if you’ve not heard it before!)

Self Esteem Boosting Activity; Little Stars Plan!

So here we have it, post its with lots of things for them to be proud of written on them.  I’ve missed out the uncontrollable pillow fights, dropping their tea on the floor (how?!!), the waking everyone up singing, the bickering.  I have quite a range of ‘alternative’ material! 🤦🏻‍♀️🙈🙄🤯 But I don’t want to give it anymore air time than I have to.  As they develop their idea of self, I want them to have all the lovely things that they do at the front of their minds and mine!

Plusses for me – I’ve sat down (the house can wait / stay “lived in”) and I feel more positive.  I’d forgotten loads of this stuff until I went looking in my mind. I’m also hoping that they’ll get into their car seats quicker to read what’s been written….there’s no words for the school run at the moment 😤🤯.
