The Butterfly Relaxation is a relaxation script suited to pre-primary to year 2 students. A beautiful butterfly visits the children and comes to land on parts of their body. As she rests they breathe and become very still and soft so that she can feel safe and relaxed. As she moves around the body, their attention is drawn to these areas of the body and they relax each part.
The combination of physical relaxation and the visualisation of a butterfly allows children to benefit from both mindfulness and using the imagination to calm the mind and body.
This relaxation has been trailed and successful with preschool and early primary aged classes and after school groups.
