Can of Can-Do and Can of Calm mindfulness and positivity prompts for children and adults

Our story

Building a can-do attitude and positive mindset in children and adults everywhere with our little cans of mindfulness.

As parents to three girls, two of whom are teenagers, we have become acutely aware of the stresses and distractions that kids face these days. The constant buzzing of their tablet or phone, the impossible expectations created by social media, the never-ending slog of school and homework, the complications of friendship groups… the list is endless and can take the shine away from the brightest child. Our Little Can of Can-Do was created to give daily doses of affirmation and mindfulness exercises, to help build a can-do attitude and a positive mindset.

We wanted to create something simple and colourful but still include important messages about confidence, mindfulness and gratitude. Whilst we had seen various journals and tools in the marketplace, from our own experience, we knew that not every child will commit to writing something out daily so we wanted to create something quick and fun for kids to engage with and carry out almost anywhere.

Our ambition at the Little Company of Can-Do is to grow our 'little cans' to cover a wide variety of issues and help people, young and old, to de-stress, enjoy life and be grateful. The collection has grown to include a variety of cans, including our Can of Calm and deluxe Can of Can-Do. We hope our cans help spreads a little bit of joy and well-being.

We are really proud to have partnered with local charity Yis (Young People Mental Health services) on the Little Can of Can-Do. Behind the scenes, the charity has been really helpful in feeding back on the product and the can's mindful exercises and positivity prompts. Whilst purposely keeping the well-being messages light and fun to ensure that children 8 years+ can engage with them, the exercises help to encourage positive thinking, reduce stress levels and build confidence. Each can sale contributes to helping a child with mental health problems and we are very proud that together we are making a small difference and giving back.

Reviews

  • "Small but mighty! I love this little can. Me and the children taking it in turns to pick a card out everyday and set aside some time to do the tasks. The kids love the idea of us all doing something together, even if for a little while in our busy lives. I would highly recommend getting yourselves one of the cans and spending some time bonding with your kids on a daily basis. It's fab!"

  • "A great resource I purchased alittlecando to try and encourage my children to think about their feelings and to support them in how to express their feelings. It has worked so far on all levels. I am so pleased with the simplicity of the words and directions on the sheets inside, they have allowed my children to express their thoughts in a very simple way."

  • "My daughters little helper. I have an 11 year old who suffers with anxiety and low self esteem...... she absolutely loves this product! Everyday after school she comes home takes out a card, we discuss what it says and incorporate it into her day. This way she can chat and get out her emotions in a positive way, without thinking g that sharing is a weakness. Thankyou so very very much!"
