When we teach children about mindfulness, we help them build strategies to cope with big feelings, manage stress, and prepare them to face life’s challenges with resilience. There’s increasing evidence to show that cultivating mindfulness in children helps with several areas in life including reducing levels of stress and anxiety, improving focus and concentration, and improved overall wellbeing at school and beyond.
At Learning Resources® we’ve been helping children learn through play for nearly 40 years, and our growing range of personal, social and emotional development toys and resources have all been developed to support families and schools as they help children build mindfulness through social-emotional learning.

Read, Imagine, DRAW…
Picture-This Books is a growing series of children’s books for children to illustrate themselves. Each book has the story printed on one page, with the opposite page left blank, ready for children to add their very own drawings in pencil, crayon, colouring pen or paint!
This completely original children’s book concept encourages imagination, creativity, and originality and gives children an age-appropriate mindfulness activity. It’s also lots of fun and includes memorable characters and the perfect amount of silliness. With Picture-This Books, children have the space to feel seen, heard and understood as each title draws on kindness, empathy, connection, understanding, the beauty of our world and the joy of childhood, without shying away from big global issues and everyday childhood worries.
We recommend children first read the book with a grown-up and then go back to the beginning of the book and add their illustrations a page at a time. Picture-This Books needn’t be rushed. A page or two a day is a wonderful way for children to find their calm and express their creativity, especially after a long or difficult day.
The books allow every child the space to interpret a story as they imagine it; this means they can draw themselves, their friends and family onto the pages in front of them. As a result, the reader’s unique life experience is represented like never before. This wholly inclusive element is Picture-This Books’ way of challenging an industry that sadly remains predominantly white, ableist and gender stereotypical.
With Picture-This Books, no two finished books are ever the same – just like the children illustrating them. Picture-This Books have five titles available now and two more planned for 2022. Created for imaginers aged 5+ – plus a pre-schooler edition in the works!

You don’t have to be a guru to introduce a mindfulness practice to little ones. As a Forest School Leader and Mum of two boys I use nature as a way to bring everyone into the moment.
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.
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 mindfulness activity box.
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.
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 activity box.

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 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.

Arlo & Jude began in 2019 after founder Emily had noticed her son who was 4 at the time was getting upset anytime he had to go somewhere without her.
After thinking about how she could help him. Emily designed the first ‘secret powers’ item. A t-shirt that said the word ‘brave’ but in a secret code so that only he knew what it said.
They launched via crowdfunding and since then have gone on to create lots of items to help children based around the ‘secret powers’ theme. The business has seen sales steadily grow over the past 2 years due to the pandemic. The most popular item is the worry doll which has even been purchased by adults for themselves!
Emily has also recently set up the ‘Secret Powers club’ which is a 6 week block of classes for children. The classes teach them strategies and tools to deal to help promote confidence, self esteem and resilience.
The Arlo & Jude products are created with the aim of helping children feel brave, strong and happy. The business now offers a range of products from secret code clothing to worry dolls and badges. One of the best selling products are the ‘talking tokens’ which encourage little ones to open up and talk about their day.
Included in the box is an A6 instructions card, 4 wooden tokens and an Arlo & Jude cotton bag.
