About the prize
We have done some research and put together a mindfulness pack containing three items which would be useful for promoting good mental health in a range of schools and settings. They are:
Mindfulness Scavenger Hunt
- An outdoor treasure hunt game aimed to help children notice and appreciate nature and their environment.
- A fun game that can be played in the garden, at the park, beach or on a walk.
- Encourages children to notice their environment and appreciate everything it has to offer.
- Simple game so young children can play it with a little bit of help but fun and exciting enough slightly older children can also enjoy it.
- Helps adults be more mindful and see their garden/park/walk through the eyes of a child. Makes a great Christmas stocking filler for children and for Christmas winter walks!
Acorns to Great Oaks CD: Meditations for Children
“Acorns to Great Oaks – Meditations for Children” helps children to become and stay aware of the world around them, aware of their own fabulousness, aware of energy, aware of their thoughts and feelings influencing their lives and that of others, aware of their connection with this beautiful planet we live on, and aware of how they can change anything for the better, easily and quickly, in order to create trust, strength and happiness. We are creatures of habit. If we can pick up ‘bad’ habits (stress, anger), we can also be taught good habits (relaxation, trust, conscious breathing, forgiveness, peace…). We need to teach children how to manage their own behavior instead of having others manage it for them. Meditation and being aware is coming to a place within your heart and mind where you feel happy and trusting so you can feel good again, in and after any situation, wherever you are and as quickly as possible. Visualizing specific pictures in the mind supports this. It teaches children power and control over how they feel, what’s happening and where they want to be in life! Acorns to Great Oaks – Meditations for Children contains 22 short meditations to help children on their way, so they can then easily apply ‘coping mechanisms’ into real life
Mindful Monsters Book
All the Rainbow Monsters are Mindful Monsters too, Respecting one another, like all good monsters do. The Rainbow Monsters are back, teaching you how to be mindful. If you want to grow up as fit, healthy, happy and strong as a monster, join them in their colourful antics.
