Resiliency Play of the Day -- Being a Respectful Friend

Apr 13, 2020

Today’s Ripken Playbook Play of the Day focuses on how to practice being a respectful friend, a good listener, and speaking kindly to others. This activity draws from our Healthy Choices, Healthy Children – Resilience Edition and will help kids visualize positive behaviors.  


  • Paper
  • Pencil, pen, or markers/colored pens

Activity instructions/questions:

This activity can be done solo, with a partner, or with a group

  1. Draw what respect looks like to you
    1. Is it a helpful gesture to your parent or grandparent? A kind word to a friend? A thank you note? Explain on the back of your drawing what you drew and how it is depicting respect or share with your partner/group.

Hang your picture up somewhere where you can see it to remind you of how to be a respectful friend!
