In celebration of World Mental Health Day on the 10th October, we have partnered with Guest Blogger Angelique Loverso of Head, Shoulders, Knees to bring you some ideas for magical mindful play. Angelique is a teacher and Mum to two lovely boys. She is passionate about early learning, play and and conscious parenting approaches and she shares her knowledge on a variety of topics on her Blog and Instagram account. Today, Angelique is sharing some wonderful mindful play ideas for helping little ones engage in a calming and thoughtful activities and play.
It has been a challenging season for all of humanity, and parents everywhere are looking for ways to keep a sense of calm and peace for their children. If mindfulness is the ability to accept the present moment, then getting lost in mindful play is the perfect tool - especially for our children. When our kids get deeply engaged in play, craft or reading, they are showing strong mindfulness skills; skills that keep them present and prevent them from getting lost in worries or overwhelm.
