Children are very aware of what’s going on around them. They’re so much like sponges, absorbing and taking in everything. With the stress and talk of the cost of living crisis, it’s important to ensure that we’re meeting our children’s wellbeing needs. So we wanted to share some daily mindful activities we do with our own daughter.
4 daily mindful activities
1) Affirmations poster
Positive affirmations helps children to gain confidence, contributes to a growth mindset, and helps children to truly believe in themselves. Children need to hear what makes them special and strong over and over again. You can purchase our alphabet affirmations poster as part of our bundle of 6 posters here.
