This is a wonderful activity to explain to children how mindful breathing helps calm a busy mind. You will need an empty jam jar, water and glitter. Explain that the jar is like our mind and the glitter is our thoughts and feelings. Put the glitter in the jar, fill the jar with water and tighten the lid. You can then shake the jar and explain that this is a busy mind with all of the thoughts and feelings going around and around. Then put the jar down and do some mindful breathing, 30 seconds will be enough but you could do more if you like. Pick up the jar again and explain that just like the mind jar settles, our mind also settles, calms and clears when we practice mindful breathing.
