‘Moving faces’ octopus creative project

Today we had great fun running sessions for children to help their emotional intelligence.

Using creative discussions, first they created a ‘moving faces’ octopus to identify emotions, what they feel like and what might bring these on.

They then moved on to create their angry/calm octopus; this helps children become more aware of triggers for angry/sad feelings and the strategies they can use to calm down.

Well done to all of those that attended! North Kent Mind are running sessions for children and young people each school holiday for FREE, keep an eye out for our next ones and come along.

A Poem by an Aspirations Client

Alone once again
Deep in the night
Looking for colours
Oh so bright

Looking for freedom
To ease pain in my heart
Searching and searching
But where do we start

Look deep into the abyss
The colours so strong
Hold on little one
It’s not where we belong

You need to have colours
Oh so bright
Not the dark dark one’s
That come in the night

We don’t have to be here
It’s not a good place
We’ll take it slowly
It isn’t a race

It will be daylight soon
We need to take care
We need to stay together
You, me and LoLo Bear

Anon (Aspirations client)
