Guided Meditations for Kids


During rest hour, we would often play soft music, chimes, chants, or simply white noise to help our friends settle down, relax, and hopefully get some rest. We also explored listening to guided meditations designed for just kids - and our friends loved them! The meditations are often quietly told imaginative stories with soft background music lulling them into a deep relaxation. It may even work for you, as well!


Here are a few to try out at home before nap or sleep - or anytime during the day where you may need a little relaxation and centering.

In addition, meditation apps Headspace and Insight Timer both have guided meditations designed for kids!

This time is hard for us all. I hope sprinkling in some mindful moments alone or together will help ease some of the uncertainty and struggle we are all feeling.
