Mindful Advent Calendar for Kids (and teens)

We felt inspired (as we love Christmas) to create a mindful advent calendar

Use it at home or in class to help kids practise some simple mindful activities and meditations in the lead up to the the festive holidays.

Simply print off this free mindful advent calendar for kids and cut out each day’s meditation that you can hang from your tree or a branch.

They can simply colour in the pictures (mindfully) and/or do the mindful activity for each day – join in!

You can expand each of the mindful meditations or create your own (there’s so many more to create… a gingerman meditation, snowflake meditations, candy cane… to name a few!)

If you need further inspiration you can learn more through our courses or books – how to teach kids (and teens) mindfulness and meditation.

Teaching meditation to kids with special needs

I love showing people how to teach kids meditation.  I am constantly amazed at how children and teens respond to mindfulness and mindful activities and it gives me no greater joy to see the delight of the adults who teach them.

Often adults are amazed how kids respond.  Perhaps adults think that it must be difficult for kids to meditate because adults usually struggle at the beginning.  I don’t believe this is true and especially for kids with special needs.

I believe in them.  I believe that kids with special needs are just as capable of finding moments of peace if we show them how.  I refuse to accept that they can’t do it and know that it is my purpose to help find a more creative, fun and adapted way for them to access this important life skill we call meditation.
