1) Mouse and cat game

5 min


They loved it.  The mood was good.


2) Sotar and Ulie made a drama on a difficult situation to talk about:

If they didn’t allow them to go outside, no permission.

The kids wrote on a post-it what they thought about the situation if they were the child (anonymously).

Then we discussed about which thoughts are “helping” andnon-helping


QuestionWhat do you do to feel better?


A: shares with staff
D: asks friends to ran away together
N: bad behaviour towards staff


QuestionWhy are you not allowed to go outside the gate?


1. Because it's dangerous out there

2. There are troubles outside

3. Staff is afraid that kids will be tempted to run away (no trust)

4. Annoyed because no permission to go out and play soccer

5. Perhaps allowed to go out another time

6. Afraid that something bad would happen to the kids

7. Afraid that kids will disappear

8. Fear of bad behaviour. Staff cares about the kids.


Any helpful thoughts:


Perhaps it' dangerous outside
Afraid of car-motor accident outside


R plays soccer outside, but is actually not allowed. (Felt as usual, perhaps a bit anxious outside)


3) DRAMA with the kids:


R wanted to go out to buy snacks.


Annoyed, wanted to climb the wall.
J was afraid that something will happen
S: afraid that snacks from outside aren’t good


Ways for the kids to feel better:


Sharing with a friend
Playing with a friend
Thinking: next time it will be allowed


Sotar thought: "If I went to play outside for a long period of time, the staff of KDM would be concerned, so it’s better if he plays with to feel better."


Drama 2: Sotar, Uly, Susanne 

Susanne arrived and she brought a clothes donation for children. Sotar came in and he wanted them, but he wasn’t allowed.

Angry, because he didn’t get the nice clothes, but gets the ugly ones
Afraid that he wouldn’t get any nice clothes

Helpful thoughts by S

Dance on Irish theme, 8 steps:

D and most of the kids didn’t focus and they didn’t follow the instructions. Sara decided to stop the activity.


Balloon game (sitting on a balloon, half blown):

At the beginning you felt stressed because you thought that this was going to brake-blow up, body, physical reactions (sweating hands, muscles tight)

Emotion reactions (afraid, insecure).

As soon as you realize that the balloon is not going to brake you feel normal, and even playful.



The way you think influences a lot how you feel physically and emotionally, moreover, it even influences what you do.


A: soft feeling
N: felt nice
M: chewy
TSIL: heart beats was faster
A: heart beats was slower
TLSFe: hands felt tight


Bouncing on balloon:

S: afraid it would burst
A: nice
I: afraid it would burst
L: afraid it would explode
D: comfortable
M: nice


Kids who are afraid the balloon would burst:


Heart beats faster

Sweaty hands

Wanted to hold on to something


If it felt comfortable (because already sit on balloon for awhile):

AD: because they were already used to it

I: because it didn't burst

- J: because the balloon was small

F: already good at sitting on balloon

D: because it felt comfortable


It was the same action that we did: just sitting on the balloon.

When starting, we may be afraid, but after we get used to it, we won’t be afraid anymore. Once we're not afraid, we will start to be braver and press the balloon, because we know that it won't burst.


Glass falling activity

Ulie pretended to sleep when suddenly a strong sound (crash) was heard.

She did it twice:

- Thinking that it's a thief

- Thinking that it's a cat


The way you think influences the way you feel and the way you act.


Asked the kids to take her place and showed what theywould do.


A: 1 afraid, 2 felt normal
J: 1 afraid, 2 normal
I: 1 there was a thief. 2 a cat
S: 1 scared, wanted to call the police but she didn’thave a number 2 felt normal, she went back to sleep
D: 1 panicked, took his hand-phone 2. He woke up, then he went back to sleep
T: 1. Panicked when she woke up. 2 she woke up then she went back to sleep


* Song:

The way you think changes what you feel and what you do
