3 FREE EMPOWERING ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN
Download our free sample package of calming exercises for kids. This social emotional learning resource includes mindfulness and problem solving activities.
In particular, we’ve included the 5-4-3–2-1 Grounding activity. This poster invites kids to take mindful breaths as they zoom in on 5 things they can see, 4 things they can feel, 3 things they can hear, 2 things they can smell, and 1 thing they can taste.
Next is a visualization exercise called “A Peaceful Place in Nature.” This activity guides children to imagine or draw a calming and safe place outdoors. It could be a place you have been to before. Or perhaps a place you have seen in pictures of. Such as the mountains, beach, river, lake or park.
Lastly, there’s a poster entitled “Solution-Seeking?”. This free pdf includes prompts that encourage kids to consider different possibilities and resources they can use when faced with a challenge.
The calming exercises for kids featured in this pack are inspired by our larger Calm Kids Activity Book. Filled with more than 100 interventions that promote self-awareness, mindfulness, emotion regulation, and social emotional learning. Best of all, it’s a great classroom management tool, too!
