Whether you’re just getting started with using positive affirmations for kids or if your kids are seasoned affirmers, we have some great resources and suggestions for you and your family! Join us for a chat about the importance of positive affirmations for kids, how to use positive affirmations for kids, how to get our “60 Powerful Positive Affirmations for Kids” freebie, and…last, but certainly not least, how to get our 60 Powerful Positive Affirmations for Kids coloring pages!

Why use Positive Affirmations for Kids?

Even if your kids already seem pretty resilient, it’s certainly not a bad idea to introduce and use positive affirmations with them. Their little brains are sponges and soak up each and every influence that’s around them. If you can do your best to ensure there are more positive than negative influences, you’re going to do that, right?

Enter: Positive Affirmations for Kids. Just as we, as adults, may tell ourselves “everything will be ok, I will get through this” in tough times, affirmations can help kids to believe in themselves and can even increase their self-esteem and feelings of self-worth. I am not a professional at all (disclaimer), but, I totally believe in the power of affirmations for kids…and adults.

We can all agree that there’s nothing bad about kids believe in themselves, right?

How to use Positive Affirmations for Kids

As with most skills, repetition is key! Did you learn your multiplication facts right away when you were younger? Um….nope. Unless you’re a total genius (if so, congrats!), you most likely practiced those multiplication facts over and over again. Flash cards, writing the facts out, completing worksheets…it took a lot of work and repetition, right? The same goes for positive affirmations!

When it comes to the 60 Powerful Positive Affirmation Coloring Pages I created for kids, I designed them with the goal of having kids complete 1 coloring page per week. Then, throughout the week, that affirmation would be repeated each day through a variety of activities.

Here’s an example of how a week might go with the “I am Smart” positive affirmation coloring page:

  • Monday: color in the coloring page, say the affirmation out loud, and hang the coloring page up on a wall/cabinet front/etc.
  • Tuesday: start the day by saying the affirmation out loud and start a list with one example “I am smart because…”
  • Wednesday: start the day by saying the affirmation out loud and add another example to the “I am smart because…” list
  • Thursday: start the day by saying the affirmation out loud, add another example to the list, and practice writing out the reasons through a sensory activity (writing in sand, for example)
  • Friday: start the day by saying the affirmation out loud and read through the entire “I am smart because…” list. This activity could even be reinforced by creating an original song, a dance, writing a poem, etc.

Once the coloring pages are completed, I envision them being displayed on the walls of your homeschool area or throughout the hallways of an elementary school so they can serve as a consistent reminder of how awesome the kids are. They’d make the areas bright and colorful while bringing some positivity into the space. Sweet!

Sounds like fun, right? Of course, you’re totally open to using the coloring pages however you’d like, but I especially love the idea of incorporating a variety of skills and sensory activities into the affirmations.

I LOVE these coloring pages. Like, looooooove them love them. Each coloring page has been created by yours truly to help empower and encourage positivity in kids of all ages. All 60 coloring pages are included in one PDF file, making it easy to store, easy to access, and easy to print!

As with all of my Teachers Pay Teachers products, I over-deliver with this set by providing 60 8.5″x11″ coloring pages instead of 52 (you know, because there are 52 weeks in a year and I envision this set being used as a year-long activity). If, for whatever reason, you aren’t jiving with a coloring page or two, there are 8 “extra” to make up for it! I do the same with my National Days monthly writing prompts by providing 9 extra prompts per set. Why? As a veteran teacher turned homeschooling mom, I appreciate having, and providing options, when it comes to educating my kids.

Not only does the set of 60 Positive Affirmations for Kids Coloring Pages come with the coloring pages, but I’ve also included the freebie mentioned above! I’m all about saving you time and getting you the most bang for your buck!
