I have been wondering how I can influence a child's self esteem with my plush animals. The idea that the animals make a child feel good and smile is nice but I wanted more. Friday morning I came up with this new idea to put backpacks filled with my affirmation cards on the back of my animals. These two are my prototypes and I think they turned out really well. Now a child can cuddle with a soft plush animal and also read, or have read to the affirmations in the backpack. The affirmations will teach the child about self worth, how to be with friends, behavior in school, manners and much more.
