Teaching and incorporating mindfulness into your home, classroom and therapy session is easy with the Growing Mindful card deck featuring 50 unique mindfulness activities to teach awareness, how to be present in the moment, and cultivate kindness & curiosity. Perfect for all ages!
I'm a therapist who works with adolescents, and I love these cards! They are great to leave in the waiting room, but are also helpful as a way to start and end sessions. They work especially well for kids who get easily overwhelmed in sessions, and make learning about mindfulness fun. Definitely 5 stars!

I am a pediatric occupational therapist who works in schools and in a private clinic. We use mindfulness techniques and social/self-awareness curricula in our practice, but we've never had specific exercises other than those we make up on the spot. This deck of suggestions gives me peace of mind that someone else had done the leg work! It works equally well in schools and in the clinic, and I have even used it for elaborating thoughts in written expression by having kids write down their experiences of mindfulness (not just talk about them, or think about them). I recommend it highly for clinicians and parents, alike. It's easy to use, and the simple language lends itself to many age groups.
