Feelings of worry, anxiety and nervousness can be hard to talk about, no matter how old you are.
When those feelings won’t leave you alone, try feeding them to a “worry monster” who loves gobbling up your uncomfortable feelings. This craft, adapted from the blog Sun Hats and Wellie Boots, will teach you how to make one.
Drawing your own worry monster can make it easier to express what’s stressing you out alone, according to Formative Psychological Services, but this worry monster is hungry, too. You can feed it all your other worries — try writing them down or drawing them and putting them into your worry monster’s belly.
