Breathing exercises are a great way to become more aware of oneself in the moment. Today’s resource offers a multitude of visual supports to assist mindful breathing techniques, along with other ideas that can be explored with the child or young person to help discover what works for them as an individual.
An additional idea to practice the long and slow breathing technique is to make this simple dragon’s breath craft at https://onelittleproject.com/paper-roll-dragon-craft/.
Remember, it is often preferable to adapt out resources to suit the specific needs and interests of the child or young person you know. With this in mind you could adapt the dragon's breath craft to create a rainbow breathing unicorn or a rocket instead.
