It only works if you practice, though, and it can be hard to figure out how to teach little kids how to slow down and just be in the moment.  It doesn’t have to be, though! In this week’s video, I’m sharing my top three favorite ways to introduce mindfulness to even very young children.  All three are super fun, super quick mindful games that can evolve into a stronger, longer mindfulness practice over time.

What do you think?  Have you tried mindfulness games with your children?  Leave me a comment below!
