There is something spectacular about every season. Take time with your children this fall to notice the unique attributes of autumn. Here are FIVE fall mindfulness activity ideas to use with your My Mindful Mat to get you started.
1. Fall Breathing
Go outside. Following the “Breathe” prompt in the board book, take deep breaths in and out. Pay attention to how the cold fall air feels in your mouth and lungs.
2. Leaf Shapes
Use your Mat (or other item) as a tracing board. Use fallen leaves to outline the shapes.
3. Leaf Crunch
Take a handful of leaves in your hand. Hold them next to your ear as you squeeze your hand tightly. What do you hear?
4. Leaf Tracing
Find a large leaf. Use one finger to trace the outside edges of the leaf. What does it feel like?
5. Tree Songs
Sit with your legs crossed on your mat. Listen careful to the leaves falls and the branches swaying. What song does it sound like?
