Introducing Mindful Kids

Are you looking for ways to incorporate mindfulness into your children's day? Introducing Mindful Kids from Barefoot Books! 






Easily adaptable for home or classroom use, these cards are structured to take all children, regardless of ability, through their whole day from morning to night with peace and inner strength.

Start the day strong

Has a child in your life woken up on the wrong side of the bed? Use the breathing and visualization activities to help them notice their mood and release any grumpy feelings or worries.

Calm your students

Help kids focus before a test with breathing exercises. Group and partner activities can help students resolve conflict, build friendships and boost other social emotional skills!

Overcome fears

Is a child nervous to try something new? Use these cards to help them practice replacing negative thoughts with positive, encouraging ones.  

Get ready for bed

Tame bedtime struggles with these fun activities! Once you've worked out the wiggles, help little ones slow down for sleep.

Research shows that practicing mindfulness increases focus and concentration, teaches children to self-regulate emotions and develops empathy, self-awareness and kindness.

Mindful Kids was written by an award-winning author and mindfulness expert, with input from early childhood development and inclusion specialists - it's perfect for everyone, from ages 4 to 104!
