Calm Down Cards

The brilliant tool to teach your child to calm down

Has your child ever thrown a fit?

If you’ve answered yes, then these cards are for you!

Kids throw fits because, well, they’re kids. There are things we can do to help our kids learn how to calm down and work through their feelings.

Telling your child to calm down or stop crying when they’re upset simply doesn’t work.

It is crucial to not just TELL your child to calm down but to teach them how to calm down. This is where the calm down cards come in.

How They Work

Deep breathing will slow your child’s heart rate when they’re upset. It not only helps them to calm down in the moment, but teaches them how to regulate their emotions and avoid future meltdowns.

Teaching your child how to utilize their breath to calm down is an incredibly helpful tool. The calm down cards incorporate both breathing and full-body activities with imagery that children can relate to.

The cards also offer a tangible reminder and distraction. Your child will love being able to choose their favorite card to use. Allowing them to make a choice will help them regain a sense of control.

What You Get

The Calm Down Cards are a set of 12 custom cards. Each has a unique breathing activity with a hand-drawn picture on the front and simple instructions on the back.

They also come with a parent guide to direct you how to best use them and other tips to help you help your child work through their emotions.
