This is a fun, engaging, creative and non-threatening intervention which is great for students to explore calm down strategies.
Sandwich ingredients represent the various strategies to support the student to calm down. The following strategies are included: bounding on a ball, playing with play-doh, counting to 10, writing down thoughts, listening to music, stretching, quiet time, drawing, reading, going for a walk, meditation, hugging a favourite toy, having a drink and thinking happy thoughts. There are blank copies of the ingredients for students to write down some calming strategies that they like to use.
Laminate and use white board markers for students to write their own
calm-down strategies to create their own unique calm down sandwich. This is great for a lunch time individual or group therapy intervention.
