Grief Activity Books for Kids 3-9 - What's Your Grief

GRIEF: Elmo's cousin Jessie shows Elmo her memory box, a place she keeps things that remind her of her dad. Making a memory box like Jessie's is a great activity for children coping with the death of someone special.

Balloon anger activity - Also used this activity with grief for a girl who lost her grandfather. He had been in the military so she wrote a note to him, placed it in a helium balloon. Had the balloon filled and sent it into the heavens with a little ceremony. I did not believe it had that much of an impact; however, mother reported that the child talked about it for weeks afterwards.

Military OneSource is a Department of Defense-funded program providing comprehensive information on every aspect of military life at no cost to active duty, Guard and reserve service members, and their families. Information includes, but is not limited to, deployment, reunion, relationship, grief, spouse employment and education, parenting and child care, and much more.

Healing Heart - used in a group where each person wrote down their hurt/grief and then decorated it. The heart was then put together with bandaids. Great first session activity to get children/teens to share their story.
