Simple matchstick boxes easily transform into pocket-sized self-soothers with this awesome expression group! In this example, Cynthia has her kids use comforting affirmations in the inside of the boxes to combat the troublesome emotions they illustrated on the outside. I love that you can get as creative as you wish with it, from creating elaborate scenes to having accordion or scroll manifestos to simple and straightforward text. Options for this activity are limitless.
