When helping children “Find Calm” at home or in the classroom, on occasion we will do meditation or mindfulness activities and the children might tell us, “I can’t do this, I can’t calm my brain down.” Stress can keep children’s brains over-energized.
So we created an activity that is easy for anyone to do and can be done anywhere, in your car, in the classroom or even right before you and your family head out for a family event this holiday season. We call it, The Music Carpet Ride.
The Music Carpet Ride is a way we introduce a state of mindful calm through imagination and music. All the children do is use their imaginations to climb onto a music carpet and ride the music through the air. Try it, it’s super calming.
