Friendship mindful activity for kids: Friends who lift my spirits most

Friends and friendship is a very important part of any tween or teens life. How they interact with their peers can have a significant impact on how they feel about themselves and their lives at any point in time. To help your kids to be a little more mindful about their friends and friendship, we are sharing an activity today, from My Mindful Journal, which helps your children to focus on the positive relationships that they have with their peers.

Mindful activity for kids

We have discussed the importance of friendship and reading, and how it can help children with anxiety before on the site. This exercise for your kids, or your class, helps them to stop and be mindful about the friendships that they have in their lives, and which ones have a positive impact on their feelings.

Mindful activity for kids

Get your children to think careful about the friends they have that lift their spirits and get them to write their names down. They can then think in the moment about how they make them feel, and perhaps, depending on their age, why they make them feel this way too.

Perhaps get them to colour in the clouds on the exercise at the same time to focus the mind?

Mindfulness, the ability to bring a gentle, accepting feeling to the current moment in time, is a wonderful skill for our children to learn. Simple, small exercises like this can help children to start thinking about mindfulness, and how they can use it to calm themselves in everyday life.

Why not get them to check out our mindful activity for tweens that focuses on how they can learn from their mistakes too?

We hope you like this activity from My Mindful Journal, why not check it out in a little more detail if you do?

We do have other activities that encourage mindfulness – including our own colouring book that is both available from Amazon, as well as an eBook.
