Draw something that you like to do (For example: riding your bike, skateboarding, reading, organizing your toys, arts, crafts, music, painting nails, etc.)
2. Emotions and Sensations
As you draw, notice what you see, hear, and feel right now.
Do “Fun Movement” while thinking about what you like to do.
4. Cue Word
Choose a word or phrase that helps you to remember this thing that you like to do.
5. Connect Cue and Resource
Think about your word and what you like to do at the same time and add “Fun Movement.”
Think about the things that you like to do to boost your confidence any time you want.
Instead of drawing, the child can paint, or do a collage, or find images online. You can do this activity with a group. Each member can take turns identifying resources and acting them out. You can plan a game for all the children to show their mastery resources.
Draw yourself doing something that you like to do (For example: riding your bike, skateboarding, reading, organizing your toys, arts, crafts, music, painting nails, etc.)
