Do you want your child to learn how to be calm and mindful? These flashcards are the perfect way to introduce mindfulness to your child. This box of 40 cards teaches children how to be mindful by focusing their thoughts and noticing the world around them using fun activities. Children can choose from a variety of exercises- including those that are reflective, improve focus, or are calming and mindful.
Mindfulness is paying attention, with care, to one moment at a time. It involves being aware of the current moment, including things like your surroundings, sounds and sensations. Each robust card is a complete activity and children can work through all of the exercises, select an area they wish to work on, or choose randomly.
It’s the perfect gentle introduction to getting a child to think mindfully. Packed with a variety of crafts and exercises, kids can learn practical mindfulness in minutes. Help to settle your emotions by making a glitter jar, take time to appreciate food using mindful eating, and find out how to take a rainbow breath. The breathing exercises can be done almost anywhere, and crafts such as bubbles of kindness use household items to create exciting tools for mindfulness.
Cards at the end of the pack explain the science behind what our body and brain are doing when we are mindful. Calm – Mindfulness Flash Cards for Kids shows that supporting a child’s positive mental health doesn’t need to be expensive, time-consuming, or difficult, and that children can de-stress, focus, and get moving while having fun.

Thanks to The Sensory Specialist for recommending me the Calm Mindfulness Flashcards for Kids. These have been a lifesaver during Melbourne’s lockdowns. When the kids are having a bit of a meltdown, the Mindfulness Flashcards are my new go to. Sarah from the Sensory Specialist is great, very knowledgeable, and as she is a mum she understands what toys/products are good for different age groups.
