Mindfulness every day gives you the wonderful benefits of feeling calm and present. We can gain more control over our emotions and decision-making. Mindfulness can help us to appreciate each of life’s small moments, too.
Use our Mindful Moments cards to teach the children in your life how to manage their emotions and be present.
Provide children the tools to develop their own mindfulness practice and form lifelong healthy habits.
Blended with breathing, light movement, reflection, and gratitude, these cards empower little ones to become calm, confident, and relaxed.

Thank you for this great resource! My students especially love star breathing!
Great for 5th grade
I use this as a strategy in my calm down corner where students can self assess and take a moment when needed! Great resource!
Looking forward to using these in classrooms in September
We are creating tool boxes for classrooms to help children and teachers manage their emotions when we return to school. I love the fact that these are already in a "card form" that a child could hold and look at while using them. It's perfect. We were going to make our own but this is better.
