Sure, the latest must-have toy is fun, but we also want to give something meaningful. Believe it or not, it’s totally possible to give kids something as abstract and powerful as the gift of mindfulness.
In simple terms, mindfulness is a particular way of paying attention with a positive mind. Your child uses the mental process of purposefully bringing awareness into the moment and changing her impulsive reactions instead to thoughtful responses. It may sound like a mature or even complex concept, but it is actually totally attainable at a child’s younger developmental stage.
The goal of mindfulness gifts for kids is to develop the skill of being present. These toys can also help promote an overall sense of calm. Some are designed for the whole family to play together to foster quality family time.
This meditation board book teaches little ones the basics of meditation with simple instructions that carry profound life lessons.
Introducing this breathing and tracing activity early and through play children can give them a basis for mindfulness, self soothing, and managing big emotions.
