DIY Stress Ball: Mindfulness Craft

Mindfulness can be practiced in a variety of ways. Meditation and yoga are great! But sometimes a craft can really get the whole family practicing mindfulness in a new and engaging way. Focusing on our breath is one of the easiest and most accessible ways to practice mindfulness and return our selves to a calm and centered frame of mind. With young children especially, having some sort of tactical tool to focus on while practicing their meditation can help enhance their experience.

Any time your child needs a moment of peace and calm, inviting them to take refuge in a safe space (their room, a reading corner, a favorite chair, or even a quiet spot in a public space) and giving them time to work through tough emotions can bring them back to a calmer and more peaceful frame of mind.

Once in their safe space, offer your child a tactile tool like a DIY stress ball to help refocus their energy.

For this project you will need:

a balloon, water, water beads, and a plastic bin.

Water beads can be purchased here.
