No Gift Card Category Found.



Our breathing exercises for kids will help bring mindfulness, focus and calm into your classroom or home.  This resource includes 15 effective breathing techniques, reinforced with clear illustrations that provide detailed visual support for all learners. Perfect for your trauma informed classroom and calm corner space.



Mindful breathing helps us to feel calmer, more focused, and better able to make thoughtful decisions. Moreover, it improves self-control, problem-solving skills, self-awareness, attention, memory, and sleep; all factor that are critical for child development and learning.

Mindful breathing is a great routine educators can implement in their classrooms.  It hardly takes much time, is a quiet activity and can work wonders with transitions.  In other words, it helps to shift chaos energy into peaceful energy.

When we pay attention to our breathing, and “breathe on purpose,” the oxygen that we take in literally sends a message to the brain that everything is okay.  In other words, mindful breathing helps us to move out of a reactive state into a receptive state, which also means we are more ready to learn and can make better decisions in whatever context we find ourselves in.

How many times have we told young people, “Just take a deep breath” without really showing them different ways they can do this?  Our breathing exercises for kids resource is a concrete guide to do such!



  • Incorporate into morning meeting and transition routines.
  • Use as Mindfulness Brain Breaks
  • Use book, poster and/or task cards in your Calm Corner or Take a Break Spot
  • Hang 18″X24″ poster up for easy visual reminder
  • Kids can wear their favorite breathing exercise on their wrist as a visual cue to help them self-regulate or focus when needed
  • Invite students and their families to practice breathing exercises at home…send home copies of the Breathing Exercise Guide and Breathing BINGO Challenge for homework
  • Use them yourself….when feeling stressed or overwhelmed (my personal go-to is the Ocean Waves; I use it all the time with my own very loud kids.)

This bundle has so many different resources available in it! So far I have printed out the small versions of the directions to have available in our classroom chill zone, and I see the students browse through them when they need a little break. I’m excited to finish introducing all of the techniques to my students and then send home the bingo for them to use with their families!

This is exactly what I was looking for! My students love these exercises and I love the visuals that accompany each exercise. This is a choice each morning and afternoon as a regulating strategy and I keep the poster and a ring with the cards in our Break Space for kids to use whenever they need them. Thank you!

I introduced one breathing technique a week and my students really liked it. The visuals were perfect for my class. I can’t wait to use it next year when we return to in person learning.
