This series of easy exercises serves as an introduction into mindfulness to teach little ones (ages 3+) how to unlock their own sense of stillness and wonder in the present moment.
Designed to empower young kids with basic techniques like awareness, breathing, meditation, gratitude, and stretching, we hope to embolden their inherent capacity for calm, confidence, and joy available to them at all times. This collection serves as a great addition to your kids' morning rituals or bedtime routines.
Each deck comes with 40 two-sided cards with watercolor illustrations for the little ones as well as more detailed instructions for parents, teachers, and caretakers.
Frequently Asked Questions
For Parents: These cards are intentionally very simple and shouldn’t take much time. Use them at the breakfast table to help your little one get centered for the day. Take them with you to the park and practice the more active exercises. Try them during quiet times to help calm them down. Make them your own.
For Teachers: Many teachers enjoy using the cards as a way to kick-off their morning routines with kids. Whether it be circle time or your daily check-ins, these cards serve as nice prompts to jump start the day. Alternatively, we’ve also heard of teachers using them to conclude the class and help students wind down and reflect. Whatever works best for you!
Age Range: While we designed the cards for little ones in mind (ages 3-7), we’ve received great feedback from “older kids” (and parents!) who’ve found them very helpful. The practices of mindfulness are intentionally simple so they really do work for most age ranges. If you’re looking for a simple introduction, these will work well.
