To help kids thrive, recognizing their strengths is just as important as working on their challenges. Here’s a cool — and crafty — way to identify kids’ strengths and connect them in a paper chain, or a “strengths chain.”

Download and print the set of worksheets above and follow the directions. Want a demonstration before you dive in? Watch the video below.

For families: Make the strengths chain with your child. Working together will help both of you see your child’s strengths and how they link together. Planning to do this activity with more than one child? Print a full set of worksheets for each child in case they may have many of the same strengths.

For educators: After your students create their own strengths chains, connect the chains to make one long chain to hang in your classroom. The activity can spark a conversation in your class about how everyone has strengths and challenges. Plus, the completed strengths chain is a visible reminder to your students that they all contribute to making the classroom community stronger.
