Share your Scarf week!


Each day of Share your Scarf week we're thinking about one of the SCARF letters.

Today is Resilience day! It's all about bouncing back when things go wrong or when we feel fed-up.

Copy the R for Resilience onto paper or card - an old cereal packet will do - or print it. Then let your imagination go wild! All around and inside your letter R, draw and write about the things you can do to bounce back when things go wrong.

Ideas to get your started...

  1. What can I do to help myself bounce back when I’m feeling upset or fed-up about something?
  2. Who can I talk to when I’m feeling that way?
  3. How can I help somebody else to bounce back if they are feeling upset or fed-up?

Share your scarf!

Display your R for Resilience poster for everyone to see. Maybe even stick it in a window to share it with your neighbours - remember to check with a grown-up at home, first!

With help from a grown-up at home, or a teacher at school, would love you to share your finished poster each day on our Facebook page - or you can email us at

There's a different letter each day for you to share with others. By the end of the week, you'll be sharing your whole SCARF!
