Badger’s Parting Gifts Box 2 has been created to help children understand and manage bereavement.
The pebble painting is a simple craft activity that, along with talking about the story, can help conversations about life and loss. Your child can paint the individual pebbles to represent feelings, memories or people.
Decorating the box with the paints provided personalises, whilst encouraging expression of emotions through art. The box that is then 100% theirs, can be kept as a memory/keepsake box to keep treasured mementos safely inside.

Badger’s Parting Gifts by Susan Varley
Badger knew that his life was coming to an end, he was old and tired, but he wanted to prepare his friends for his death. When the day arrived, his friends, feeling heartbroken, started to share their stories and remember all of the things that Badger had taught them. He left each of them with a parting gift.
This story helps to explain that whilst we may not be able to physically see our loved one who has died, they can still remain an important part of our life.
