This is a wonderful selection of mindfulness and relaxation activities based around the popular theme of Toys. The activities are perfect for introducing the idea of relaxation and self care to young children as well as encouraging them to explore their own bodies.
The exercises can be used individually but there is a full lesson plan which culminates in a journey through a playroom which uses all the different techniques which is a wonderful activity for the children.
Mindfulness and relaxation have been proven to increase children's concentration, create a calmer atmosphere and even increase attainment. It is a wonderful addition to any setting.
All my lesson plans are created for people with no prior knowledge of relaxation and mindfulness techniques and carefully go through every technique step by step. They also include a fun script for you to read through which incorporates all the techniques learned into an enjoyable, relaxing story which is completely age appropriate.
My lessons now all come with a child and teacher assessment sheet which is fully editable and enables you to show evidence for the progress and learning for each child.
This lesson is suitable for children aged 3+ years.
This download included a custom meditation MP3 created especially for younger children.
