This set of 18 mindful breathing exercises for kids will help your child learn to regulate their emotions and calm down.
Mindful breathing helps to regulate the nervous system. It switches off the stress response and lets the brain know that we are not in danger. It is a powerful strategy for helping kids calm down and manage big feelings.
In fact, mindful breathing for kids is a great place to start your child’s mindfulness journey. Children as young as 2-3 can master mindful breathing techniques with a little practice and guidance. Each of these activities is fun, quick and effective. They provide children with different visual cues and other sensory feedback to help them focus, understand and master the breathing techniques.
The cards are designed to be small enough that they can be kept in a calm down box or kit at home or school, or carried around in a handbag or backpack to be used on the go. In fact, many of the activities can be done discreetly and no one needs to know what your child is doing.
- Dragon breathing
- Hot chocolate breathing
- Bumblebee breathing
- Pretzel breathing
- Cool down the pizza
- And more…
To get the most out of your mindful breathing exercises, simply print them out, punch a hole in the corner of each card and place them on a ring. Now your child can flip through the exercises to find the one they need. Next, watch on as your child learns to gain control of their big emotions and behaviours and begins to feel calmer and more confident before your very eyes!
