Creative Activities

This activity allows your child to explore their personal values and what they ‘treasure’. Your child will create up to 10 cards, with each card representing something, or someone they treasure.

The cards created in this activity will be used again in Module 3, Activity 3.2 Trading treasure cards.

Duration: 30+ mins

What you need:

  • print Worksheet – Activity 1 – Personal treasure cards
  • coloured markers or pencils
  • scissors
  • envelope to store cards

  • play time (online games and real-world games)

Ask your child to write one item they treasure in the circle on each card.

Then illustrate and decorate each card.

Once your child has completed their personal treasure cards, give them an envelope to store them in for use in Module 3, Activity 3.2 Trading treasure cards.
