“These activity cards are wonderful for our exhibit facilitators to use for mindfulness workshops with families, or for getting kids focused before a field trip or summer camp. They are easy to understand, and also give adults new ideas for ways to explain, visualize, and build upon familiar techniques and exercises. We need more of these tools in our communities! Kids are never too young to begin learning to be more attentive and gentle to others and themselves”

I love how the cards are organized into categories and bring simple and effective mindfulness skills into everyday moments to support a purposeful pause in the busyness of life. I will continue to use these in my psychotherapy practice, in mindfulness teachings, and with my own children, as well as recommend them to parents and teachers alike.
