    Free To Be Me Gift Set

    Emotional health and resilience in our signature sunshine box!

    At Fresh Minds Education we want children to be healthy, to be happy and to have positive relationships with others and within themselves.  Part of that involves supporting to feel free to be their unique and wonderful selves, to enjoy the journey of self-discovery and forming their own special identity and to enjoy living alongside others who are different to them. We want children to fully accept themselves, love themselves and to see themselves as a complete person capable of small and great things! Children who are free to be themselves have a positive sense of self-image, sense of self-confidence and positive self-esteem. Children who are ‘Free to Be Me’ Thrive! But we also know that growing up in our world that local culture, online life and the global screen giants reward conformity and so we recognise the importance of reminding children to be wholly and uniquely themselves.  Mental health outcomes are directly related to how children feel about themselves, so why not give a child the gift of mental health through investing in our ‘Free To Be Me’ workshop in a box! The ‘Free To Be Me’ Sunshine Box will become a treasure trove where children can build up their very own collection of the little things and memories that reminds them of their strengths.  A little box of sunshine that will create inner rainbows on rainy days ahead. What's in the box:
    • Words that inspire children to be ‘free to be me’

Perfect to hang up on a hook in your classroom or community centre.  The sack contains; Bamber  Amber is the Fresh Little Minds therapeutic puppet used in the delivery of our programmes.  During the pandemic children could no longer spend time with Amber, and so Amber had baby puppies lovingly known as bAMBER.  As Bamber is much smaller more people could have the benefits of AMBER but at an affordable price. Bamber is now being used in Fresh Little Minds Relax & Regulate Programmes in schools and community settings across the country.   Educators will bring bAMBER out into the classroom setting during the delivery of Relax & Regulate and bAMBER will often live in the Amber Sack or another special place designed by the leader or children in between sessions.   Many schools have now provided children with their very own Bamber who provides calming, cuddles and comfort and reminds children to use theAMBER techniques if worried, sad, or scared!  Bamber comes complete with its very own label, a Bamber printed ribbon collar and a 16 page, A6 passport.  No ordinary passport, the Bamber’s passport is a complete educational resource in itself.  It contains a ‘Teddy Certificate’ and a children will enjoy working their way through the passport pages  and in doing so, embedthe Amber approach.  A3 Golden Rules Poster  The Fresh Little Minds Golden Rules Poster has been created to cultivate trauma responsive practice. The poster consolidates key teachings of more than 14 scientific, phycological, evolutionary and neuroscience theories into a series of simple, easy to follow, pragmatic instructions for adults, written in plain English.  Put most simply the golden rules give all adults involved in the lives of children practical ways of being with children that will enhance relationships and the poster goes one step further by giving a plain English explanation as to why that rule matters in order to support the developmental, nurture and learning needs of children. The Golden Rules embody the AMBER approach.   AMBER Intervention Cards for educators  These A5 cards are perfectly laid out for educators looking for self-lead coaching to incorporate the AMBER model into their group work.   Each card outlines a simple rationale of each of the AMBER steps, Anchor, Move, Breathe, Express and Relax.   The ‘Ask Yourself’ section then coaches the reader to self-reflect. The Action section is intentionally left blank to enable the reader to write up a practical action that they will take in relation to implementing that element of the model.  AMBER ICON set  Five colourful cards, each card showing one of the AMBER approach icons – Anchor, Move, Breathe, Express and Relax.  The icons are all colour coded and we have found many children respond to the consistency in our use of colour in relation to specific elements of the learning. Wonderful discussion starters and reminders of the AMBER steps to wellbeing, positive mental health and resilience.   Emoji Card Set   A box set of 56 Emoji cards containing a variety of “Tricky Feelings” and “Feel Good Feelings” these cards are visual aids for educators supporting children to recognise, name and express their emotions.  Cultivating emotional literacy and communication.   AMBER Soul Songs Music Album  Enjoy this beautiful music full of positive messages which help children dance, have fun, and relax.  Through this music your children learn different ways to help their bodies cope and feel calm. Each song shapes children’s minds and is jammed packed with positive messages that help children thrive.  The Album contains some of the music that you will hear played within the Relax & Regulate Programme.    Medicine Moves A5 Card Set   This card set illustrates a sequence of breath work and movement that has been created to be used alongside the Fresh Little Minds meditation song ‘Strong Like A Mountain’. Loved by children this song incorporates, belly breathing, rhythmic breathing, collective flow movements and stretches.  There are a series of affirmations built into this card set and children love to recite these as they are learning the meaning of the song.  The metaphors of nature are used to help children understand themselves more fully, their magnificence and their importance.  These exercises are perfect for groups, families, classrooms and events.  Mindfulness - Movement - Breathwork - Positive Affirmation - Boosts Self-Acceptance   Sphere   We use fidget toys and props during the programme to add interest, offer a sensory experience and encourage children to have a visceral rather than a cognitive experience.  The sphere is used to play group games with and can be used by that person who needs that stimulus to take part.  It is often used in breath work mimicking the belly or the lungs.  This is a great tool for educators to lead, teach and model intentional breathwork.   Flower Windmill   We like to use visual stimulus during our programme delivery, it can help support the participation of children offering them something to interact and work with.  Flowers and windmills are recognisable by children, so they rarely are distracted by these items but due to their colourful nature they are engaging and send out a visual cue of a call to action around intentional breathwork. The educator will use the flower and windmill to demonstrate, teach and test children’s skill level during breathwork teaching sessions.   Relax Children’s Kit (Hard Copy)  All of the Fresh Little Minds Programmes boast high quality educational and therapeutic products to support children’s engagement, encourage meaningful communication and embed learning.   The children’s participant kit for Relax & Regulate is downloadable but this is a hard copy for the educator to use.  The bright and beautiful A3 Poster can take pride of place on the learning space wall, something to refer to as the weeks pass by.   Self-Care Essential oil and instruction notelet for teacher  Self-Care: A Balance 10ml roller ball for use on pulse points with instruction and self-care notelet presented in an organza gift bag.
