For the last few weeks we have been exploring different activities to practise mindfulness. We have been spending some time on Tuesday mornings with our buddies in Tautoru to have a go at finger knitting, beading, yoga and colouring.
Check us out trying some of the activities...
Here we are working together with a buddy to add beads to a piece of string. We practised our fine motor skills as well as learning how to work together.
Colouring can be a great way to relax. The colouring craze of the last few years came about as people became more aware of the benefits to our psychological health. A great stress reliever as well as lots of fun.Count us in!
We also explored finger knitting. I find this to be a great way
to relax and it only took me 3 weeks to learn (the kids got it in about 3 minutes)
Everyone has their own way to practise mindfulness. Whether it be taking a quiet walk or reading a book, it is all good for us. Have a talk at home about what you find relaxing and share your ideas.
