What Does Grief Look Like: Activity to Illustrate What Grief Looks Like to Kids

How to Talk to Kids about Grief

Jennifer Messelt, Hospice of the Red River Valley grief specialist, shares a hands-on, adult-led activity you can use with children to help them understand what grief looks like and what they can do to cope with their grief.

*This activity is intended to be led by an adult. Children should not handle the materials.
