Purpose To help children develop breath awareness
A collection of small stuffed toys
In a large-group setting, ask the children to place small stuffed toys
on their tummies. Explain that this is a quiet time, and turn down the
lights while keeping outside disturbances to a minimum. Practice
slow, deep breathing, and ask the children to watch as their toys
slowly rise and then fall. Don’t be surprised if they fall asleep!
