Reviews of Star Cards
The products are spellbinding. My son has the two books, the star cards and now after my last order all the cds except princesses obviously. He loves them and so do i. What an amazing concept for children of this era to remain positive and calm throughout this hectic. He uses these cards everyday at breakfast and loves them.
I have just recieved my star cards and just had to let you know. Wow they are amazing. I just nodded off trying them out. I cant wait to get to school to put them on for the kids I might even take the cards to my adult yoga class to night. Thanks so much for sharing your gift
I use the cards at home with my three children and this December I made an advent calendar with the cards. The children absolutely loved it. It gave them a focus for each day during the very frantic and exciting time. If the children managed to be the star for the day, the christmas elves left them each a chocolate in a special box. It was a brilliant idea that really worked. tell everyone about it.
These cards are amazing. I place them in my singing bowl for the children in my class to pick out a card each. even the 2 year olds that I teach cant wait to choose a card from the bowl. Some children know which card they are looking for and wont give up looking until they have found it and some children love the random surprise. They are just amazing.
My class love the star cards. We have taken a magic power star card each morning at circle time and this morning I almost forgot but they were quick to remind me that we had not taken our magic power for the day.

Just to let you know the star cards went down a treat. Lauren loved them and went round the ward to the other kids & nurses with them.
The children I have been recently teaching have wholly embraced `Relax Kids`. Whenever a new CD arrived or indeed the `Star` cards, it was just like Christmas for them. I have never experienced such enthusiasm or anticipation in the classroom for a new resource.

We use the star cards in the morning at home and it makes me happy cause then i can help other people even older people and get them to be kind too cause sometimes they listen even though im younger,especially my big brother,i like the cards where you have to help someone and they make me feel like no-one can be nasty to me.
I facilitate a group for at-risk girls that provides time and space for them to develop their own internal values-based atmosphere. At the end of the year, each girl is equipped with their own box of star cards. They LOVE them so much! There is a definite need for Relax Kids. Thank you so much for such inspiring material and resources!
I think the star cards are great. I always have them in my bag - I use them with individual children; in circle time and in training with staff in schools. Children and adults really like them and are able to take a positive moment from them. Thanks
I wouldn`t be without them. They are an excellent way of getting children to acknowledge what inner qualities they have and a great tool for generating discussion. The star cards are beautifully illustrated and very versatile in that they can be used in lots of activities - I recently made star biscuits and got the children to ice them with one of the qualities taken from the star cards.

I beleive that over the years my girls have regularly used the Relaxkids CD`d, Star card, moods cards and also me reading the The Relaxations to them from Relaxkids books. they have been more self aware of there emotions. They even seem to notice if they havent had a relaxation session for a few days! Which is all wonderful for girls growing up. They are also so aware of there special qualities which I feel has been helped so much by the Star cards!
Shaun and Alex pick one out for each other in the morning and if I notice the star quality during the day I mention it and it`s so simple but it makes him beam with pride! Many thanks for the inspiring products

I have these cards and use them with my children. They are such a great way to introduce positive affirmations to kids. They make them feel really confidant and always get excited to find which one they will get next. We pick one each a week and base our week around that card.
I love these cards, I use them with my 5 year old son and with the children from the school I work at. The children love them and get so excited when I get them out. There are so many things you can do with these cards, you can use them as rewards, to build confidence and discuss feelings. I have made up lots of games with these cards, that is the beauty of them they are so versatile. The illustrations are beautiful. I would really recommend them for home use and anybody who works with children.
just opened my Star Cards – they’re gorgeous, thank you so much for sending them through. Going to order the poster now. Daisy (my nearly 5 year old) loves them too! Thank you

15 ways to use Star Cards in the Classroom
Star Cards can be used to help children see and develop their qualities and strengths and help them see how special and unique they are. The more they become aware of their unique and special qualities, the more confident and self aware they will become.
1 Put the Star Cards in a draw-string bag or colourful box and let children pick on out at the start of the day. Tell them that is their magic power or special quality for the day. You may like to ask one child to pick on for the class and write it up on the white board as that day's theme.
2 At the end of the day, ask children to remember what star they were for the day.
3 If a child is upset or in a mood, ask them to pick a Star Card to help them change their mood.
4 Make a list of all the positive qualities on the white board and ask children to choose which ones they are now and which ones they need to work on.
5 In twos, ask one child to pick a Star Card and see if they can mime the quality and ask their partner to guess which quality they are miming. It may be easier to give each group a pack of three cards to choose from.
6 Ask children to pick a Star Card and think about what it means to them.
7 Ask children to take a Star Card and as they breathe in and think the words I am a ............Star and as they breathe out, say the words I am a ............Star.
8 Have a discussion with the class about the different qualities and why they are important. You may prefer to discuss one quality.
