Courage Cards

Arthur and friends huddling together in their soccer uniforms.

Gather art supplies, blank index cards, child-safe scissors, clear contact paper, and one piece of paper (large sheet).


Ask your child what helps them feel brave when they are scared. Suggestions might include a flashlight, a favorite stuffed animal, or having a family member nearby. Write their ideas on a large sheet of paper.


Ask your child to draw pictures on index cards of whatever it is that helps them to feel brave. Encourage them to dictate labels for you to write on their pictures. Afterwards, laminate the cards by pressing them between two pieces of contact paper. Rub the bubbles out and trim the edges. Your child can carry these pocket-sized courage cards with them wherever they go!
