THE AMAZING BRAIN SHOW - Home Activity Sheet

The Amazing Brain Show engages children and their families in improving their emotional health and well-being. Its aim is to give children an awareness of their amazing, smart brain and the fact that it runs their body and is also responsible for learning, memory and for their emotions. It is very busy and needs proper care. Children, through our multimedia, see inside their body, their lungs, heart and intestines. They learn to respect both themselves and others.

Children are empowered by simple feedback loops to manage their health, both physical and mental. For example - Children learn how to tell if the are drinking enough water by the colour of their wee. They may have joined our wee police and inform you that the best colour for our wee is white wee - a pale, wheat colour. When we don’t drink enough water (yellow or orange wee), we may have headaches and feel tired. Click the image below to download a PDF version of the Activity Sheet.
Because we believe that every child deserves to know the importance of food, water and sleep for both their physical and mental health - and how to monitor them, we have developed an interactive multimedia Brain Health Education Pack for educators to use in the classroom.

Addressing brain health in early childhood is proving to bring about long term improvements in behavioural concerns, mental health issues, depression, anxiety, self harm, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, family violence and addictions.

Mental and emotional stability is founded on Nutrition, Hydration and Sleep  - FOOD - WATER - SLEEP
