We help children grow strong healthy brains through creativity and mindfulness - as we want them to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives. Our craft wellbeing boxes support children to become happier by developing a positive mindset and help them bounce back from life’s challenges.
Every day our children fill their brains up with information, such as watching TV, phones, social media and excessive screen-time. They develop their belief systems about themselves and the world around them from their environment. Children's brains become busy and 'mind full' instead of ‘mindful’.
By letting busy thoughts go, there’s more space in our brains to respond well, feel more happier and content and bounce back when things don't go the way we want them to - this is called resilience.
By helping your child to handle both the highs and the lows of life, they can successfully manage themselves in a variety of experiences.
The Happy Craft Box takes your child on a success path to learn and apply the life tools to keep their brains healthy and well!
HOW DO OUR BOXES HELP?
Emotional intelligence includes the ability to understand and regulate emotions and emotional wellbeing includes positive mindset and good self-esteem.
By applying mindful awareness to thoughts and feelings it creates an inner space that allows you to be with your experience without believing the negative stories your mind can churns out.
It is essential that children learn to create these positive emotions within themselves. Negative beliefs can impact our lives greatly and can be hard to shift as we grow older.
It is very empowering for a child to create positive thoughts and feelings of self-worth, so they can bounce back from life's inevitable challenges.
We help children grow strong healthy brains through creativity and mindfulness - as we want them to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.

Lynda Phoenix is the founder of The Happy Craft Box, she is passionate about health, wellbeing and the arts. She has worked extensively in the wellbeing and yoga industry and the creative arts industry.
Back in April 2020 at the start of the first national lockdown she became increasingly concerned about the effect the pandemic was having on children. By using art therapy and mindfulness she helped her own daughter through the isolation and change of routine using these powerful techniques.
As lots of children's lives had been thrown into complete upheaval in the midst of these uncertain times she knew these techniques would help other children.
An estimated three children in every classroom has a diagnosable mental health problem. Rates of depression and anxiety in teenagers have increased by 70% in the past 25 years.
