1. Use My Mindfulness Bingo (in our Gratitude & Mindfulness Kit) to help your child feel more connected to themselves by practicing mindfulness. This fun bingo game is the perfect introduction to various mindfulness activities.

2. Check out our Mindfulness Playlist on Spotify! This music will help your children relax while doing mindfulness activities.

3. Mindful Brain Breaks (in our Gratitude & Mindfulness Kit) are great activities to do throughout the day. When your children are mindful, they're paying attention to what they are seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling – everything in this moment, right now. They only take a few minutes but can make a difference.
