Resilient kids are Mistake Makers. Everyone make mistakes and there are many benefits to making mistakes - for one, it’s how we learn. So, it’s critical that our kids learn how to deal with mistakes in a positive way.
In this two day program, kids will explore the art of being and thinking like a Mistake Maker through:
- creating “Make something great from a mistake” sculpting and painting projects;
- learning about famous Mistake Makers in history; and
- improving problem solving skills by doing STEM challenges
As this program is a bit longer than a normal day, kids will do some mindfulness colouring-in and meditation exercises that support learning and wellbeing.
The two day program will give kids the Breath, Admit and Think tool to help them react when mistakes strike and give them:
- confidence and perspective to face mistakes;
- a language to identify how they are feeling and thinking when they make mistakes; and.
- strategies for dealing with mistakes confidently.
The BAT (Breathe Admit and Think) tool will help kids react with more confidence when mistakes strike. Parents will receive a copy of the BAT tool with parent information sheet to help their children deal with mistakes after the program.
In addition, to looking fabulous, the three completed art projects will act as reminders of the messages long after they are finished.
