Everybody’s different - embrace it!


We all look different. We are all different shapes, sizes, colours, and some people have differences that might seem unusual. Everybody’s Different: The Appearance Game aims to help children to understand that differences in appearance are normal and there's more to who we are than just how we look.

Developed with leading academics from the Centre for Appearance Research at University of the West of England, Bristol, Everybody's Different: The Appearance Game helps create a relaxed, informal environment where children feel comfortable talking about appearance, body image, and the impact of the media.


Helping children develop positive body image


Many children are happy with the way they look, but some are not. Positive body image is an important part of emotional wellbeing, but children as young has 5 have been identified as having worries about the way they look [1]. Children who are dissatisfied with their body image are less likely to engage in learning, and over half of bullying is related to appearance[2,3]. The media is also a key influence on body image for young people, and Everybody's Different: The Appearance Game helps children put appearance into context, and understand that there's more to who we are than just how we look.
