This week Mrs Taylor is recommending meditation and mindfulness and Mrs Anderson has posted some great activities for parents and children to do together, to maintain good communication and emotional connection.
Teaching children to look after their minds is just as important as teaching them how to care for their bodies.
Introducing children to meditation can help them learn how to calm their minds and use healthy coping mechanisms to manage emotions and develop their mindfulness. Meditation can help children with the following:
- retention of information
- managing stress
- overall well-being
Follow the link below for a guided mediation, ‘Your Secret Treehouse’. Listen to this in a quiet space. You could get cosy with a blanket or teddy too! How do you feel afterwards?
You might like to do a mindfulness colouring after. There are some colouring pages below that you can print off or you could create your own.
Please send Miss Taylor photographs of your meditation time or your mindfulness creations to email@example.com.
