Every face has a place
At KidsMatter we believe that every face has a place. We’ve designed a simple activity sheet for junior primary children. It can be used during Component 1 to help you talk about belonging and the way that everyone in their class and school has an important part to play.
Children can draw:
- Different faces of children in their class
- Faces of people in their school (eg the receptionist, the groundsman)
- Faces of people in their family or community
You could also use the sheet during Component 2 to brainstorm different feelings and emotions. Download the Activity Sheet Every Face Has A Place [83KB] [PDF] Activity Sheet Every Face Has A Place [37KB] [Word]

Why do we do what we do? It is because kids matter.
Here are some ideas to help you help your kids to remember that they matter:
Idea 1: Invite kids to have a discussion about: “How do people show you that you matter? What matters to you? I matter because …”
Idea 2: Use the KidsMatter logo as a starting point for a discussion. How many children they can see the in the logo? Use the two people from within the KidsMatter logo as the basis of a collage, mural or to make your KidsMatter flags.
