We all could benefit from incorporating a little mindfulness into our hectic lives….even our little ones. If only there was an app for that…well, now there is. Best news for you AND your kids is that it is interactive and someplace that they already love to play…on your iPhone.
Larter shared “Stop, Breathe & Think Kids is a new mindfulness app for children and I have 2 young ones I have a 6 year old boy, and a 2 ½ year old little girl and they also always want to grab their screens but this app is one of those times that’s really special where they can go on and pick the emotions that they’re feeling. Whether its “hyper or curious” my son often picks “proud” and then it sends you to a game or activity that helps kids unwind. There’s one about Bigfoot that he really gravitates toward before bedtime. It’s a really powerful tool to help guide kids to get in tune with their emotions.”
Attending families checked out the new app on ipads, made Mindful Glitter Jars, participated in Mindful Coloring, Face-painting & Glitter tattoos, and enjoyed mini sandwiches, fruit and pastries from Joan’s on 3rd and personal care products from The Honest Company.
