Forest Wild – Mindfulness Activities for Kids
Just getting outside is good for your child’s well-being and mental health but coupled with the act of focusing on your senses, creating some nature art or observing animals can bring you into the present moment together and can help to reduce levels of anxiety and stress, as well as being active, entertaining and calming.
Here are 3 ways to get children outside and out of their heads.
- 5 Senses Connection
Take some deep breaths together and starting with sight, take a moment to notice and talk about what you can see. Then move on to sound and notice what you can hear, then touch and what you can feel, what you can smell and finally what you can taste (don’t actually lick anything though).
To extend the activity above, use the senses to go on a scavenger hunt. For example, for touch you could find things with different textures, bumpy, prickly, smooth etc… check out my 5 senses mindfulness set on Etsy.
- Nature Art
Create a nature mandala together. A mandala is a circular symmetrical shape containing repetitive patterns and they represent the universe and the idea of wholeness. Whilst out and about collect natures treasures, use the senses to notice the weight, texture or smell of the item found. Once you have a good selection, start getting creative.
- Nature Observation
Bird watching or bug hunting are great activities for bringing you both into the present moment. Look under logs for bugs or sit quietly and observe the birds. Check out my bug hunting and bird watching kits on Etsy.

LuLi Crafts – Mindfulness Activities for Kids
LuLi Crafts are launching brand new Mindfulness Craft Packs. We are offering individual packs as well as a subscription service which children will receive monthly. As mums we know first-hand just how much lockdown is effecting children’s mental health and so we wanted to create something with a Mindfulness aspect as well as a creative element. We know how creativity helps us reduce our own stress and anxiety levels and so we want this to be a tool for children to also do the same.
Our aim is for children to make meaningful products and so our subscription packs will also include personalised items that are specific to each child. We also offer themed crafts so that children can paint and then use the finished craft, for example in their play which helps with their imagination and exploration of the world around them.
As a brand we believe that it is the personalised touch and finer details that make us unique. We thrive on making something different and so we are always changing designs and adding new dimensions to our products.
Our packs include everything needed to produce a beautifully finished product so you don’t have to worry about buying or supplying anything extra.

About Ink and Scribbles
Ink and Scribbles was founded when I was looking for something to support my daughter with her emotions. After much research and learning, I found a route through my parenting approach that focuses on building a strong connection with her through emotion coaching techniques. I’m now passionate about guiding other parents to support their child’s emotional health and development. Ink and Scribbles is an online shop where parents can choose from a range of beautiful, supportive wellbeing resources for their child and themselves including workbooks, printables and affirmation cards.
