Kid's Grief Resources
There are several blogs that I recommend have useful activities and resources including Kids Grief Relief and Grieving Children.. Some of the published workbooks have useful activities. One I have used is The Grief Bubble is a special workbook for children ages 6 and older who have experienced the death of someone special. The interactive format invites them to find expression for their thoughts and feelings, encouraging the exploration of their grief. A useful tool for parents, counselors, educators and other caring adults supporting children in grief. Finally as far as regular books to read Sad Isn't Bad: A Good-Grief Guidebook for Kids Dealing with Loss has a positive message that I think is useful in counseling or to send home for a parent to read with their child.
