I've spoken briefly on the blog before about my eldest child's autism diagnosis. He is a brilliantly clever kid but can be very hard on himself and tends to focus on negatives rather than positives. When I first heard about Nipper Cards, I thought they seemed perfect for him.

Created by Nipperbout founder Janthea Brigden, Nipper Cards are a powerful and fun way to help children understand their feelings and affirm their belief in themselves.

They come in beautiful bright purple packaging and there are 52 cards, just like a regular deck of playing cards. Each card has an animal on it which corresponds to the type of card it is.

  • Transformation
  • Fear
  • Power & wisdom
  • Grace & intuition
  • Creativity
  • Joy & love of life
  • Teaching
  • Magic
  • Innocence & fun
  • Dreaming
  • Breath of life
  • Gathering & storing
  • Gentleness
Each animal then has four messages which reflect both sides of that quality. For example, the fear cards also incorporate courage as they are opposites.

You can use these card in many different ways and there are some game ideas on one of the cards included in the pack, such an Animals Families and Snap. We started with a simple Memory Game.

I laid all of the cards face down and we took turns turning them over to see if we could get two matching animal families. 

I took this time to ask C to read what was on the card that he turned over and they are just so beautiful. I think each child should have a set of these cards. On occasion, C, who is usually quite negative about himself, would say, "Oh, that's definitely me!" which really made me smile.

It wasn't your usual memory game as each card would open up a discussion for us. I would ask if he understood the question and if not, we could chat about what he thought it meant and I could explain fully. They have definitely been a positive influence on him and we have even added into our family game night for a little boost.

You can purchase your own Nipperbout Affirmation Cards from Amazon for £9.99.
