The goal of this activity is to help you child engage and participate in deep breathing exercises to help them learn coping strategies/exercises.
Growing My Skills
Ask your child about their senses (where is your nose, mouth, ears, hands/fingers, etc.)
Ask your child if they can smell anything (model sniffing with your nose).
Ask your child if they can hear anything (model touching/listening with your ear, etc.)
This activity can really help your child become in tune with their body!
Asking them questions like; how does your body feel? How do you feel? Is your body moving fast or slow?
Also making statements like feel your belly, close your eyes, listen for your breath, place your hand over your heart are all comments that can help your child feel and connect with taking deep breaths/slowing their body down!
