Meditation and Breathing

Activity 1

Bring It Down (Guided Meditation)

This exercise teaches how to gain control of stressful energy when it becomes hard to handle. _________________________________________ Activity 2

Blowing Bubbles

Blowing bubbles is an activity that can teach students about the importance of controlled/deep breathing. Have students try different lengths and speeds of breaths to blow bubbles. Deep steady breaths win every time!     
If you don't have bubbles try using a stuffed animal to practice deep belly breathing!

Have your child lay down on their back and put a stuffed animal on their belly. Have them breathe in and move the stuffed animal up, then breathe out and bring the stuffed animal back down. This helps teach kids to use their belly to take big deep breaths. (

Activity 3


Arms start at the side of your body; arms go up as you breathe in and go down as you breathe out (arms make a rainbow)
