Designed to address the whole child/person, Living Values Education activities engage people of all ages in exploring, experiencing and expressing values so they can find those that resonant in their heart, and build the social and emotional skills, which enable them to live those values.

The universal values explored are of Peace, Respect, Love, Cooperation, Happiness, Honesty, Humility, Responsibility, Simplicity, Tolerance, Freedom, Unity and more.

The initial set of five books known as the Living Values Education series are:

  • Living Values Education Activities for Children Ages 3–7
  • Living Values Education Activities for Children Ages 8–14
  • Living Values Education Activities for Young Adults
  • Living Values Education Parent Groups: A Facilitator Guide
  • LVE Educator Training Guide

Values Activities for Children Ages 3-7, 8-14 and Young Adults

Recognising the many challenges faced by teachers today with all ages of young people we have created a Library of Values Activity booklets which are essentially ‘classroom aids’ providing ideas, using activities to assist in dealing with specific classroom issues, capturing student imagination, participation and discussion, perhaps bringing our young people to a different; more caring and responsible space.

Each value activities booklet of approx. 40-56 pages is easily printed on school printer as A5 booklet/pocket book size, landscape, 2 up. Colour cover b/w inside. If you have a machine that staples great, if not a long- nose stapler will do the trick. Alternatively, you could download the files and order your choice of booklets from your local photocopy shop (one colour) for about $3 each.

Living Values Education Values Cards

The simple values cards - six per A4 page are used as reminders for what the values offer to us and we offer to the values.  Ideal for printing off and using one value each day for a week to remind ourselves of the treasure they can bring to our lives. The values cards are ideal for creating a point of focus in group situations, passing around and sharing with one another about what the particular value means to us, thus opening the doors for mutual discussion and self-discovery.

We recognise that people everywhere, in all circumstances of life, age and beliefs live from Values at their core, this section is designed to bring you the ‘tools’ to discover and to uncover values for yourself. How you choose to use them and extend them is your choice and your imaginative process. The resources in this section allow you to engage activities directly yourself, among your family, friends, and colleagues or even students in the classroom or workplace. Through these activities, we discover for ourselves the true meaning of Values and the power that Values have to bring positive change into our lives.

Created specifically for those desiring to share Living Values activities who do not have access to formal Values print resources or access to Living Values Education Associates and Trainers.

These simple booklets, most with between 48 – 56 pages, can be photocopied for classroom or home use in "booklet" A5 form – ie regular A4 folded (to a half size) and stapled. Booklets as in the "Living Values Education Distance Home Study" and accompanying "Personal Journal" with more than 80 -100 pages are required to be copied as A4 (full page) on both sides.

Each booklet is created with activities for the age or community group and/or the Values information that it features.
