Next time your child needs a little help emptying their bucket try cloud watching.
For the ultimate calming exercise grab them by the hand and take them outside to watch the clouds. Look up. Ask them what they see floating in the sky.
You’ll notice after just a few minutes that they are engrossed in their fantasy world – and calm! To make things even more relaxed lie down on the grass or on a blanket and then use the images you see to make up stories.
