Friendship

Making and maintaining friendships is really important for children - friends help with your mental wellbeing, your self-esteem and your drive in life. It’s important that we teach children the importance of friendship at a young age due to the benefits it will have throughout their lives.

As part of our friendship theme, we’re suggesting some great books on how to make friends, be a good friend and deal with arguments or bullying in our bumper book list and giveaway. There’s also a tasty cookie recipe your children can share with friends, a diary writing activity and an arts and crafts friendship bracelet task.
