It's never too early for self-awareness, empathy, and joy-a guide for kids ages 2 to 5
Your toddler or preschooler lives in the moment, but they can still feel overwhelmed. Mindfulness for Little Ones helps children ages 2 through 5 move toward healthy coping skills and behaviors with playful, developmentally appropriate activities. Designed to tap into your child's innate curiosity and boundless energy, these fun activities promote the repetition, sensory play, and positive emotions that develop mindfulness for kids.
• Learn with fun-Dance, wiggle, create, and explore with playful activities that engage the senses and nurture positive emotions, empathy, and self-awareness as mindfulness for kids is instilled.
• Not just for kids-A co-regulation guide helps parents and caregivers model mindfulness, even when little ones act out.
• Mindful organization-Activities are grouped by themes that support different aspects of mindfulness for kids, from awareness of the body and emotions to cultivating joy and empathy for others.
By developing mindfulness for kids, toddlers and preschoolers alike will acquire the core skills they need to grow and thrive.
