Welcome to Family Fridays — a series designed to give parents and children fun, meaningful activities you can do at home to explore feelings of grief and remember your loved one in unique ways.
Today’s activity, a miss you flower, supports children in remembering their lost loved one. The only supplies you’ll need are construction paper, scissors and some drawing supplies.
Cut out a large circle and petal-shaped pieces of construction paper. Support children in drawing a picture of their lost loved one in the center and then invite them to write or draw something they miss about that person on each of the petals. We invite adults to join in on this activity to model healthy sharing of feelings and memories.
This fun, hands-on activity, gives children and families an opportunity to engage in important conversations about feelings and coping strategies in remembering their lost loved one.
Full Circle is committed to our community and in our continued effort to serve, adapt, and connect with our participants (past, current, and future).
