This year has been unlike any we’ve ever known and I know how it’s all made me feel at times. I’ve often had concerns about what it must all be doing to my son’s mental wellbeing especially as he’s not always the best at communicating his fears and concerns. A fun way to get children sharing their thoughts is something I’m always keen to explore so I was happy to agree to try out the new Nipper Cards – Affirmation Cards for Children from Nipperbout with my ten-year-old son.
The Nipper Cards – Affirmation Cards for Children, is aimed at children aged four years and over. The pack comes with a set of fifty-two playing cards, featuring thirteen animal designs.
Each card contains a different affirmation message, whilst the various animals featured, represent different qualities, for example, the Swan represents grace and intuition, whilst the Spider represents creativity.
Over the last few weeks, my son and I have each picked a card randomly from the Nipper Cards pack and then talked what the card says, what it means to us and how we can relate to the qualities of the various animals. It gives us both time to stop and really listen to each other and hopefully will help my son process his feelings in the months ahead.
As well as being affirmation cards, the Nipper Cards can be used to play four different card games and with the weather over half-term being unpredictable at best, it’s been great to make use of these games.
The games include a memory game, animal snap, number snap and animal families, and we’ve enjoyed playing all four. My son is so much better at the memory game than I am!
Snap of any description is a firm favourite in this household and the two versions you can play with the Nipper Cards have been no exception. Animal Families reminds me a little of Happy Families that I used to play as a child too.
The cards themselves are made of good quality card, so they will withstand playing with younger children and hopefully provide hours of entertainment for the whole family. They’ve certainly gone down well here and I can see them working well in a school setting too.
