Talking about death is hard for anyone. To explain it to a child when they are already grieving, can be painful for both adult and child alike.
Memories Box is designed to make that process easier for you, and for them.
The box you receive has a plain design, but includes all the art supplies your child will need to customise it, to make it 100% theirs. A memory box to store countless keepsakes, a place to keep treasured items to help them remember the loved one they have lost.
In the box;
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 try to prepare his friends for his death.
Heartbroken, his friends started to remember all of the things that Badger had taught each of them leaving each 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.
