Or, just follow these steps:
- Think about the special people, creatures, places and things you are thankful for. Talk about some of the ideas that pop to mind with kids.
- Once you have those in mind. Take a deep, slow belly breath in. And as you breathe, think about one of the things or people you are so grateful for and breathe in all that makes it so special.
- As you breath out, breath out a deep sense of thanks for that special person or thing.
- Repeat this a few times, each time thinking about a new person or thing as you breathe in and out.
Why is this activity great for kids?
Even better, when you engage kids in a Thankful Breath, you combine all of the goodness of gratitude with the mind and body centering benefits of deep and intentional breath!
