Activity Array

Here you'll find an array of activities for elementary children that can be used in Children's Ministry, after-school programs, in the classroom and by homeschoolers.

Managing Temper Flares


We all get angry.  We all get upset.  How can we manage our anger and have self-control?

This unit was compiled for my after-school program.  We read and based the activities on the book, “What to Do When Your Temper Flares” by Dawn Huebner, Ph.D.


We spent about a week on each chapter to allow time and practice for each of the behavior pointers.  Each chapter lends itself to a theme which is what the activities are based on for that week.  The activities themselves run the gamut including STEM activities along with art, social skills, reading and writing.

I hope you and your children enjoy this unit.  You can follow the posts easily by clicking the links below:

I enjoy planning lessons, directing VBS and child care programs. Children's ministry is my passion. God Almighty is my strength and inspiration. For fun I choose hiking, canoeing, camping, cooking, and reading.
