Gift of Confidence Box for children

The Gift of Confidence Box for children

As a parent or carer, we can encourage and support our child to be more confident and resilient so that they can be able to cope with everyday life. One of the tools I have developed to help is the Gift of Confidence Box

The idea of this Gift of Confidence  Box, is that children can put in various items which will help boost their self esteem and confidence. It is a box that they can build on and use it throughout their journey into adulthood. I also offer coaching ans support to help children with their self esteem and confidence.

  1. Empty box or paper to make your own box with blank A4 Cards or paper
  2. Glue
  3. Gift wrap paper
  4. Scissors

Write down on strips of paper things that will help boost your confidence e.g
