When you’re feeling blue, wouldn’t it be great to reach into your pocket and pull out a little comfort? Well you’re in luck! Try this little DIY “comfort box” craft.
What you’ll need:
A small empty cardboard box (like a match box or jewelry box)
Markers, paint, pens
Decorations (glitter, magazine clippings, little photos)
A positive message
1. Decorate the outside of your box with things that make you happy (glitter, magazine clippings, photos, drawings)
2. Inside the box, write a positive message to yourself like “You’re worthy.” or “You can do this.” or “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.” If you prefer, you can use a favorite quote like “We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated” – Maya Angelou. Also, try giving yourself some self-love with a message like “Today I want you to think about all that you are instead of all that you are not.”
3. Put it in your pocket and take it out when you need a little boost
