Blue light pens are so useful in therapy and can be used in so many different ways! Plus, kids absolutely love the novelty of them!! Each purchase comes with FOUR pens: blue, green, yellow and red. The ink itself is invisible, and the blue light located on the lid of each pen makes the ink visible to our eyes!
So, how do you incorporate them in lessons?
- Use them to discuss how even though people might be putting on a brave face, they are masking emotions that seem ‘invisible’ and can only be seen if we look closely
- Use them to discuss friendship and bullying and how our words might affect others
- Use them to encourage kids to express their emotions on paper. This may be particularly useful for kids who do not like writing/journaling or who struggle with the motivation to talk about their feelings
- These are a HUGE HIT in prize boxes!
