We are so excited to have partnered with Dr. Jenny Rose, a Clinical Psychologist and Parent-Child expert in our new Connected Family Series. Together we have created a series of wonderful tools that encourages connectedness within the family; modelling kindness, empathy, and which equip children with an effective emotional vocabulary.
This week we are focussing on mindfulness.
Instructions: Colour in a square when you have completed an activity. Set a date for when the BINGO should be completed but be sure to give your children enough time to complete the tasks effectively. The first family member to get 4 squares in a row (diagonally, horizontally or vertically) gets BINGO.
Developing mindfulness in our children encourages the act of bringing a gentle and accepting attitude to the present moment. It is especially helpful with anxious children, as it helps to remove focus from the past or future and instead encourages children to be present in the moment. Mindfulness is known as a significant way to reduce stress and bring about happiness. Activities like Mindfulness Bingo give parents tools that help take an abstract construct like mindfulness and turn it into something accessible. Kids learn how to use their own bodies and minds as a coping strategy during stressful times and realise that they have the resources and capacity to regulate their own emotional experiences.
