Design a RELAX Box with your child for your family. Have your child decorate a box with relaxing words or pictures. Create a series of index cards that include instructions for your favorite relaxation activities, short “feel good” stories, pictures of things you love, pictures of people you love, pictures of fun memories, and words or phrases that you like to think about.
As you are creating the cards, you can practice the activities! Place all of these cards in a box and take turns drawing one out during family circle time or during times you want to relax. Place it in your Relaxation Station, and use it to generate discussion or to initiate your relaxation practice during your daily circle time.
