A friend of Frugi's, Lee, is an Education Consultant with a passion for teaching mindfulness to kids, she helped us create some super fun tasks for our '5 Frugi minutes' mindfulness challenge!
"Many of us live our lives rushing through the day, blink and it’s the end of the week, the month, the year. Life is happening, but we may not notice it due to everything else that is going on in our busy lives.
Mindfulness has many definitions, put simply it means being more aware of what is going on around us and learning from what we find. To do this we need to pay full attention to all our senses rather than getting swept up in life and the usual routine.
These Flash cards feature fun but simple mindful practices that children of all ages can do.
Young children are natural mindfulness experts: they see and hear everything, they don’t take themselves too seriously and they are spontaneous; maybe as adults we should be more like them!"
We love this fab daily journal for children, with simple tasks that only take a few minutes a day...
