A Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use whenever a child feels stressed,overwhelmed or upset. Imagine the glitter as your thoughts. When you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts, then watch them slowly settle while you calm down.
Cut out some squares, circles or whatever other shapes you would like. Put affirmations suitable for the kids age group on them and take one you feel guided to. You can use them in group settings but also pick one a day,if you are using them at home.

I use my own regularly in my relaxation classes and the kids love receiving their positive messages!

Relaxation, Yoga Games, Stories, Art and Poses are all used as part of Kids Yoga.
Ronah studied with Rainbowkids yoga and is constantly looking out for more relaxation and
well-being ideas for the little ones.
Get a jar and fill them with little messages of all the things you and your child are grateful for.One suggestion could be adding a gratitude once a day,for example.When the Jar is full, they can pick one when they need to be reminded that they really have a lot to be grateful for.
