To celebrate Mental Health Week 2021, our wonderful volunteers made videos of simple, fun, activities to boost children’s mental health.
Parents and carers, we feel your pain! Lockdown poses serious challenges for everyone, but especially for those looking after young children. If you’re looking for some engaging, screen-off activities that will boost your child’s mental health and resilience, you’re in the right place!

Let us know how you got on!
We hope you’ve enjoyed some of these activities! Why not share the whole playlist and let others know how you got on! Keep an eye out for other resources for families on our blog, or follow @citywiseuk on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
