Adding Comfort to Your Space
Now that you’ve looked at the different areas, further consider your own space and what you might add to offer comfort. Watch this video (meant to share with children) and reflect:
- Where in your space could become a “cozy corner”?
- What are some comfort items you might add to that area to soothe children? (pillows, stuffed animals, dolls, blankets, soft fabric, and so on)
- Is there a way for you to distribute small comfort items to children?
You might suggest to parents that they offer their children a piece of their clothing to hold when they are apart (even a small piece cut off from an item they no longer wear). If appropriate, they can show children the video and talk about their comfort items.
