It is normal to feel sad when your kids miss someone (their parents, grandparents, friends, relatives) especially when they are far away or do not see them frequently. Here are some fun downloadable activities for your kids to keep them busy and allow to channel their emotions. Grab those pencils, pens, and crayons and let their creativity and imaginations soar!

1. Write on a balloon Activity

Materials: Permanent markers or colored pens, transparent or colored balloons, ribbons or strings, balloon stick


Kids can ask the help of their parents or siblings to blow the balloons up and secure them with the strings or ribbons. Use a permanent marker or colored pens to write on the balloons. Kids can write the names of  whom they are missing on each balloon or write simple messages for them. Use balloon sticks to hold up the balloons. Once done, you can let your kids decorate their rooms with these balloons.

2. Make a Photo Collage Activity

Materials: photos, glue, crayons, colored papers, scissors, scrap book or large sketch pad



You can think of different themes for the different 

sets of photos that you have. Together with your 

kids, arrange these photos on the pages of the scrap 

book. You can use a sketch pad if a scrap book is 

not available. Design the layout for the photos to 

make them look attractive. When you have decided 

on the layout, glue the photos. Now you can let the 

kids draw borders around the pictures,  or draw 

simple patterns on the spaces or you can  also cut 

out small designs and let your kids paste them on the spaces of the pages. 

You may also let your kids write a quote or a title for the photo collage.


3. I Miss You Greeting Card Activity

Greeting card Template

You may download and print the greeting card template and let your kids color the pictures. Fold the paper in 4 equal parts. The part with the picture should be the front page while the greeting should be found on the inner part. Help your child write their name and the name to which he/she intends to address it. You can take a picture of the finished greeting card and send it online or have it mailed. 

Here are other activities you can do with your kids.
