I taught the kids that breathing in a mindful way is like having our very own super power. It can change how you feel, and it can change how others feel. They loved the laughing breath exercise because they had a chance to be super silly while still actually, physically noticing how someone else's breathing/mood affected them.
I've worked on fine-tuning the curriculum to give the kids a good mix of physical activity, mindfulness activity, and creative space to do whatever they want. My 7 year old complained that camp on Friday wasn't long enough, which I'm going to take as a huge compliment!
A, age 7: I love being with my friends and doing art projects.
L, age 4: My favorite part is superhero games. I like being a helper.
L, age 6: I like the art.
R, age 8: My favorite part is how you can relax.
