My Cope-Cake: free printable from OMazing Kids

One of the activities that I love to do with kids who have anxiety or need help learning self-regulation skills is to help them make their own “cope-cake”. The cool thing is that it is personalized to them and the image of a cupcake takes most of us to a “happy place” in our thoughts. I left room around of the top of the cupcake so kids can drawn or glue on pics of things that they like and/or things that make them feel calm as extra “sprinkles” on their cupcake.

Here’s the free printable that I made to use with my patients: My Cope-Cake – free printable from OMazing Kids

My Cope-Cake - free printable from OMazing Kids

This activity was inspired by this handout I read online a couple of years ago: http://bookwhen.s3.amazonaws.com/assets/documents/4140/original.pdf?1360464416 but I simplified it to fit the timeframe I typically have to work with kids in a session. The author sells a book that I bought on Amazon called “The Worry Wars: An Anxiety Workbook for Kids and Their Helpful Adults!” that is full of fabulous strategies but is rather pricey ($40.00…. I was able to get on sale for $30.00).
