Welcome to Family Fridays — a 10-week series designed to give parents and children fun, meaningful activities you can do at home to explore feelings of grief and remember your loved one in unique ways.
This week’s activity is an opportunity for children to remember their lost loved one. The only supplies you will need are a small box (any kind will work) and some art supplies.
Invite children to decorate their box any way they wish. This box will hold special memories of their lost loved one. You can invite children to decorate their box with special memories, things they loved about their special person, or some of their loved one’s favorite things. After they have decorated the box, children can fill it up with special things that help them to remember their lost loved one such as pictures, cards, and trinkets.
This fun, hands-on activity, gives children and families an opportunity to engage in important conversations about feelings and coping strategies in remembering their lost loved one.
Full Circle is committed to our community and in our continued effort to serve, adapt, and connect with our participants (past, current, and future).
