You can learn a lot about a child when you do self-esteem worksheet activities for kids. Something about a child writing down on paper things about themselves opens up the conversation. It is an opportunity to discuss what things bother them and what could be bringing down their self-esteem. Check out these fun self-esteem worksheet activities for kids!
Self-Esteem Worksheet Activities for Kids
5 Things I Like About Me:
This is super easy to create, just number a paper 1-5 with the title ‘5 Things I Like About Me’. You can do this a few times. The first things that might come out when it comes to kids are things like ‘My hair’, ‘My nail polish’, which is to be expected with younger kids. You should try this too; it is not as easy as it sounds! There is no wrong answer; the idea is to help boost kid’s self-esteem right?
The Many Pieces of Me:
Includes pieces that say ‘I think I am’, ‘My family’, ‘My favorite thing’, ‘When I grow up I want to be’ and ‘Sometimes I need help with’. This is simple to create, just a regular white piece of paper and make lines that resemble puzzle pieces and write the topics inside (small, so there is space to write). You might be surprised what you learn!
I Am Special and Unique:
On paper, make nine squares. The center one will be ‘My Name’. In the others, write things like ‘A compliment that someone gave me’, ‘Nice things my friends and family would say about me’, ‘For fun I like to’, ‘2 words to describe myself are’, ‘2 things I am good at’, ‘Something nice I have done for someone else’, ‘One thing most don’t know about me’, and ‘One thing that makes me laugh’. Give them some time to think about it, you should do it with them!
Strengths and Challenges:
You can’t always talk about the good without talking about what they struggle with right? On paper, divide it in half and on one side is ‘Strengths’ and the other is ‘Challenges’. This opens up the conversation to discuss what they struggle with and the opportunity to work on it!
I like this activity with any age because you get to see on paper how they see themselves! All you need to do is draw out the lower half of a face (basically a giant ‘U’). You can add a neck and shoulders (it’s not that hard!) Have crayons and other mediums available and sit back and see how they see themselves! It opens the conversation up as well to discuss that it is what is on the inside that is important, and also how different we all are!
When you have worksheets to work with, it makes it easier to discuss what self-esteem is and how our actions and words can affect someone else’s feelings. My favorite is the self-portrait, it is pretty enlightening!
