Sandbox City: a bedtime story and meditation story for kids

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again, so now we have “Favorite Friday.” Please enjoy Sandbox City, and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Ian has invited Mike over to play. Time seems to be creeping by.  When Mike arrives the two friends zip out to the sandbox and create a sandbox city.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 5:56
Narrator: Male

Sandbox City Story Excerpt:

Ian sighed, and tried to think of what he could do.  Waiting was difficult.  Ian began to wander from room to room looking at each clock.  Time slowly crept forward.  Ian thought the morning would last forever.  Ian’s dad heard him sigh, and looked up from his book.  He noticed Ian was looking at the clock again.   “Waiting is difficult isn’t it?” He said.
Ian looked at him and said, “The clocks seem to be stuck, it’s not even 10: 30.  Two is so far away.”  He flopped onto the couch.
“How are you feeling?” Ian’s dad asked him in a soothing voice.  He could tell Ian was starting to get overwhelmed, and needed some help.
“I’m frustrated that I have to wait so long.” Ian said.
“I can understand that.  Do you know what you can do to feel better?” his dad asked.  Ian was already starting to calm down.
“I can take some deep dragon breaths.”  Ian said, and breathed in and out (deep breath).
“How do you feel now?” Ian’s dad asked.
“Better,” Ian replied, “I think I’d better take 2 more deep dragon breaths.

Baby Duck Parade: mindfulness and story for your bedtime routine

Baby Duck Parade: mindfulness and story for your bedtime routine

A family of mallard ducks wants to go to a nearby pond. The baby duck parade travels under, over, around, and through various obstacles on their way.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:03
Narrator: Female
Baby Duck Parade Story Excerpt:

The little ducks walked through the grass, the warm sun shined down on their backs.  The ducklings were beginning to feel a little hot.  Up ahead there was something different.  There was a dark opening.  The ducks could feel the coolness as they waddled closer.  It was a bridge, and the little ducks were heading under it.  The ducks and ducklings took a deep breath in and out (deep breath) as they enjoyed the chill of the air in the short tunnel.  Before long, they had passed through the tunnel.  Papa counted 1,2,3,4,5,6, and 7.  All the little ducks had made it under the bridge.  Now they were back in the glistening sun.

Today’s Meditation: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.

Curious Koalas: a calming meditation and mindful bedtime story

Curious Koalas: a calming meditation and mindful bedtime story

Two curious koalas wake up in the middle of the day. It’s a great time to see what the day time animals do. What will they discover?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:24
Narrator: Female
Curious Koalas Story Excerpt:

Then Kian noticed someone hopping off to his side. The koala turned to see a kangaroo bouncing along. The kangaroo stood still for a moment to check out the area. As she did, a baby kangaroo peeked out of her pouch.  “Look Kiera, a joey kangaroo!” Kian said. The Joey hopped out of his mother’s pouch and both kangaroos began to nibble on the grass. After their tummies were full, the bouncy marsupials settled in for a little rest as well.

Five Little Fish: a children’s bedtime story and meditation

Five Little Fish: a children’s bedtime story and meditation

Five little fish explore the sea, just outside their colorful coral home. They swim up towards the water’s surface. What will they find?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:38
Narrator: Male
Five Little Fish Story Excerpt:

The five little fish decided to go explore away from their colorful coral beds. Fish one led the way through a maze of softly swaying sea plants. The five little fish emerged from the plants and admired the wide open sea ahead of them. A shadow floated over the five little fish. Curious to see what was blocking the sun, the five little fish looked up. The shadow seemed to use four flippers to effortlessly flow through the water. Fish two decided to get a closer look and zipped up towards the gentle animal. Immediately, fish two recognized the animal and then zipped back to share the discovery with the others. “It’s a sea turtle! Let’s go play!” Fish two said. In a flash all the fish happily swam up towards the turtle.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

A Fuzzy Friend: a kid’s relaxation and bedtime story

A Fuzzy Friend: a kid’s relaxation and bedtime story

Helen and Brianna go outside to play. They find a fuzzy friend in the backyard. What will they learn from the fuzzy wuzzy caterpillar?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:01
Narrator: Female

A Fuzzy Friend Story Excerpt:
Brianna looked out the window.  The sun was shining brightly.  “It’s really nice outside. Why don’t we play in the yard?” she said.
“Great!” Helen said, and both girls headed out the back door to play.  They started on the swing set.  Talking and laughing, the girls rocked the swings back and forth, higher and higher.  Soon Helen and Brianna were nearly as high as they could go, so the girls began to slow down. The swings moved back and forth, lower and lower until they were almost still.  Brianna and Helen hopped off the swings.  “Let’s go exploring!” Helen said.
Brianna grinned and nodded her head in agreement. The two girls headed towards the back of the yard where there was some taller grass and more trees.  “There’s usually something back here.”  Helen said.  “I’ve found butterflies, toads, and snakes.”
“Cool!” Brianna said. “I wonder what we’ll find today?”

Today’s Meditation: Today, notice loving energy flowing through your body, from your feet up to your head.

Soaring in the Sky: a relaxing meditation and kid’s story

Soaring in the Sky: a relaxing meditation and kid’s story

Hazen Hawk is soaring in the sky and watching what is happening below.  What will he see on the ground below before his nap?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:47
Narrator: Male
Dragon’s New Toy Story Excerpt:

Hazen stretched out his wings and flapped them strongly downward, lifting him off the branch.  The little hawk was off to see what he could see.  He flew up as high as he could.  White fluff gently surrounded him, and then the little hawk was through the clouds.  Above, Hazen could see and feel the bright warm sun.  He looked around at the brilliantly blue sky, and then turned his gaze downward.  Hazen saw the blanket of clouds stretch across the sky, though now there were some open spots where he could see the tiniest patch of earth.  He wondered if the Great Oak was in that sliver of sunlight.  Now warmed by the sun, Hazen decided he would fly a little lower so that he could see what was happening on the ground.

Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.
