The Sewing Room have very kindly offered to donate £1 from every worry bag sale to us to help in our fundraising activities.
Their ‘Worry Bag’ was originally created for one of their clients who has an Autistic child.
This is an excellent idea if you have a child who constantly worries about things, especially as an autistic child can do. Throughout the day every worry can be written down on a piece of paper and popped into the bag, the child is told to let the worry bag sort it out. The worry has now gone in the bag and anxiety levels drop.
If later in the day the child is still worried you can sit down quietly and discuss it with your child.
They cost just £6 each + p&p (or can be collected from Haddenham or via Little Miracles) and can be personalised and use a child’s favourite colour etc.
