A Ticklish Tree: a relaxation and tale for kids

Opie the Oak tree tries to figure out what the people are up to.  Then they put a swing on his branch and it tickles. Who ever heard of a ticklish tree?

Narrator: Male

A Ticklish Tree Excerpt:

The four trees were curious to see what the people would do.   The mom and dad carried the rope and board right up to Opie.  Then the people walked around the Oak looking up at his branches.  Opie was proud of his branches. As he watched the people, the Oak noticed they had stopped just below his lowest branch.  It was a good strong branch that stretched straight out.  Then the dad left as the mom gazed at the branch smiling.  Opie wondered what was going on.

Then he saw the dad return with a ladder.  He carried it right up to Opie and set it up just under the branch.  Then the mom handed the dad the end of the rope.  The dad took it and tied it around Opie’s branch with a big sturdy knot.   The Oak felt a funny feeling on his branch.  The rope tickled him.  He began to giggle a little.  Then his leaves began to rustle. Before he knew it, there was another rope tied to his branch.  The same funny sensation traveled to that spot.
“What’s going on Opie?” Pete the Pine asked.  Opie began to laugh so hard he couldn’t answer.

Today’s Meditation: Deep dragon breaths are a key part of this guided meditation as you relax your body from your toes up to the top of your head.

Friendly Fish: a calming meditation and children’s tale

Friendly Fish: a calming meditation and children’s tale

Connor is a friendly fish. At his little shop in the coral reef the cleaner fish helps the animals stay clean. Who will show up today?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:53

Narrator: Male

Friendly Fish Story Excerpt:

“How are you Tanya?” Connor asked as the turtle slowly settled into the calm current.

“I’m doing well, Connor.” Tanya replied. “I do need a little refreshing.”

“You’re in the right place for that.” Connor replied and got busy cleaning. As he zipped around her shell, picking off dull old fragments, he asked. “Where have you been traveling?”

The sea turtle responded “I’ve pretty much been going where the currents take me. I’ve seen kelp forests, and reefs filled with corals of all shapes and colors. And I’ve met a lot of friendly fish.”

Connor smiled as he imagined the kelp and the coral on Tanya’s journey. Before long Tanya’s shell was just as shiny as the day she hatched. “Where will you go next?” He asked.

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

Friendly Flowers and A Bouncing Bumble Bee: a relaxing kids’ story

The flowers prepare for their friend, a bouncing bumble bee named Bert. Will they be ready for his arrival or will they surprise him?

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

Narrator: Male

Friendly Flowers and A Bouncing Bumble Bee Story Excerpt:

“Beautiful morning isn’t it?” Summer the happy yellow flower said.  Summer thought every morning was a beautiful morning.  When it was sunny she enjoyed the light and the warmth, when it was rainy she enjoyed the refreshing water to drink, and when it was windy, Summer enjoyed the feel of the air as it circled her leaves and blossoms.  The yellow snapdragon said the sun made her feel like dancing.

“It sure is.”  Sawyer replied.  “I wonder if Bert will visit today?”  Bert was their friend the bumblebee.  He usually visited them on sunny days.

“I hope so.”  Summer said. “He always makes me laugh, the way he bounces around off of the flowers and grass.”  She began to giggle at the thought.

“I don’t know.” Sidney the purple snapdragon jumped into the conversation.  “Bert always seems to bounce off of me.  I better soak in some more sunshine so he doesn’t knock me over.”

Sawyer and Summer laughed.  “You’ll be fine Sidney.”  Sawyer said, “You always are.”  Sidney did tend to worry about things.   Sawyer and Summer helped him settle down when he needed help.  All three snapdragons were relaxing in the sunlight when they heard a Bzzzzzzz in the distance.  The sound grew louder and louder.  “Here comes Bert.”  Sawyer said as Sidney took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath) trying to relax.

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

Twirling Tugboat Story Excerpt:

And so, the little tugboat began to think about what she might do today. Teagan’s job was to help big ships get into the narrow harbor. Above all, she loved to help out. The little tugboat knew when she helped the ships get in the harbor the people inside them were safe. She was proud to have such an important job. Was the captain finished yet? Teagan blew her foghorn. She was beginning to get antsy. The little tugboat wanted to be helping. “Easy there, Teagan, I know you love to help, we need to make sure you’re taken care of first. It’s hard to help others if you’re falling apart. You’re looking pretty ship shape. We’re almost done.” The captain said.

Meditation Description:  Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.

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, causing the ducklings to feel a little hot.  Then, up ahead they noticed something different.  There was a dark opening.  In addition, the ducks could feel cool air 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.

Muddy Mates: a relaxing meditation and bedtime story

Muddy Mates: a relaxing meditation and bedtime story

Charlie gets stuck playing in the woods.  Terry the truck comes by and helps him out. Soon the two trucks are muddy mates.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:11
Narrator: Male
Muddy Mates Story Excerpt:

Charlie was happily rumbling down the road, headed towards a park where he could play.  As the driver turned his wheel, Charlie realized he was there!  And so, he looked around and saw hills to roll over, puddles to splash in, and rocks to climb.  This was going to be a challenging and fun day.  Then Charlie’s driver steered him into the park, and they began climbing hills and splashing in puddles.  The hills grew steeper and the puddles deeper.  Charlie had his winch so he knew he was safe.   The little truck rumbled happily as he steered down the next hill.  Then, Charlie felt his tires slipping.  The mud on this hill was slick.  Charlie tried his hardest to stay on the path, but the mud slip-slided him into a deep puddle right next to a tree.

Charlie took a deep breath, in and out, and his driver got out, as he thought about what to do.  His tires were completely covered by the muddy water. Charlie took another breath in and out.  There was a tree in front of him, so the little truck was going to have to back up. Then one more deep breath in and out. Charlie was stuck.

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