Creative Activities for Wellbeing – Plant a Seed

Drawing of a tiny seedling growing in a colourful painted pot.

Imagine that you can plant a seed in a pot and look after it (If you have some seed and a pot and some soil you could try this in real life).

Can you upload a photo or a drawing of it growing?

Can you decorate the pot it’s in?

Imagine if your plant would not stop growing…

What would happen?

Creative Activities for Wellbeing – Storytelling

Queen Ocianah of the Elves does not give up. She NEVER MESSES around. She glares at you when you make a joke.

Do you love stories? 

Do you know where the magical story portals are where you live?

How do you enter? Do you need a magic word?

What adventures will you go on? 

Who is coming with you?

Who will you meet?  

What magical powers do you have?

Draw the magical world you find yourself in. What does it look like? 

Is there a Queen/ King/ fairies/ elves/ witches/ goblins/ giants?

How do you get back?

How does your home look to you now?

Creative Activities for Wellbeing – Self-Portrait

Hi, being at home can be boring, I much rather be out in the park, running around with my friends, … there is only that much TV you can watch… so we started to think of some fun activities to do, maybe you can try them and send us some pictures. That way, we can make the best out of this situation.
