Christmas tree breaths (aka triangle breaths) is a great activity to teach children breath awareness and being present.

Practicing deep belly breathing can also help encourage relaxation and regulating emotions, helping kids to manage the exciting festive season feelings.

In this exercise you can practice tracing the shape of the tree with your finger, whilst breathing in and out, with a reminder to think of something that you are good at when you land on the star at the end.

Christmas Tree Affirmation: I am the Star at the top of the Tree

Why Teach and Practice Mindful Breathing:

When you practice mindful breathing you are using your breath and senses to develop your attention and focus skills, which can have lots of benefits at home and in the classroom. It is also a great coping skill for learning to manage our emotions and helps to elicit the relaxation response and a feeling of calm.
