 WHATS ON FOR KIDS & FAMILIES IN ABERDEEN CITY & ABERDEENSHIRE JUNE 2017Little Stars Parent/carer and Child Class (Age 3-5 approx) 

Organiser: Relax Kids Aberdeen

Where: Scout Hut, Rosehill Avenue, Aberdeen AB24 4

Date:  Saturday 24th June 2017
Time:  1:30PM – 2:30PM

Description: This is an interactive parent and child class. A story based class. This class is to help children enjoy being still and quiet, have fun exercising, learning to relax, help children sleep and promote positive self image.

A wonderful way to bond with your child giving you tools and techniques that you can use at home.

Relax Kids is a fun 7 step programme taking children on a journey starting with games, working through breath work, massage, affirmations and relaxation. The classes build self confidence, develop good mental health, build emotional resilience, help manage anger anxiety and stress and ultimately allow children to feel more in control of their emotions and happier.

The 7 steps can be adapted to suit a wide variety of needs and situations. For me what I love is it gives children an opportunity to develop their emotional literacy and gives them a means to communicate feelings, a space to relax and escape using their imaginations.

Contact via facebook link below for further details or to book you and your child.

Price – £7
