Monkeying Around: meditation and soothing story

Monkeying Around: meditation and soothing story

It’s a beautiful day! Alice decides to go to the park. There she meets Anora and the two new friends head to the monkey bars and start monkeying around.

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

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:07

Narrator: Female

Monkeying Around Story Excerpt:

Alice and her mom left for the park.  The air was warm. Sunshine formed lace patterns as it filtered through the leaves of the trees and onto the sidewalk.  Cheerful red, orange, yellow, purple, and white flowers lined the path to the park.  Alice skipped next to her mom.  They were getting closer!  Soon, she saw the playground.  It was painted in blues and greens.  The sun was shining on the twisty slide, and Alice decided she would go there first.

As they crossed into the playground, Alice looked at her mom to see if she could go play. Her mom nodded, and Alice ran over to the slide, quickly moving up the steps.  As she reached the top, Alice realized another girl was there.  The girl smiled and waved, giggling as she slid down the slide.  Alice waited for the girl to reach the bottom and then she too slide down the slide, giggling.  When Alice reached the bottom she hopped off the slide, there was no sign of the little girl. Alice heard a giggle, turned around and saw the little girl at the bottom of the slide.

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

Show Time: a mindful children’s story

Show Time: a mindful children’s story

It’s nearly show time for Rogelio, Helen, and Brianna. So, Rogelio searches for a spot in the park to rehearse their original dragon play.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:14

Narrator: Male

Show Time Story Excerpt:

And so, Rogelio resumed his search. Soon, he spotted an open area near the forest. Rogelio hurried over to the spot. There was plenty of room. Trees and benches framed the open space. The trees would be helpful to share their story, and the benches were just in the right place for their audience. Yes, this was a good spot to practice, and perform their play for their friends.
As Rogelio admired the spot he had found, Helen snuck up behind him, tapping his shoulder. Startled, Rogelio turned then smiled when he saw Helen.  “This looks like a great spot! Thanks for finding it!” Helen said.
“Thanks! I think it will work well. What do you think about storing our props over there?” Rogelio pointed to the forest.
“That will work great!” Brianna said as she ran up to her two friends, enveloping them in a big hug.

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

Adventures in Time Story Excerpt:

“Hold on.” The girl instructed. “We’re getting ready to travel back in time.” Her brother quickly sat back down and put the toy in his pocket. She added, “Ok, it’s your turn to choose our adventure. When would you like to go? I have the clock ready.”

The boy thought for a moment and replied, “Circle the hands of the clock back four times. Let’s see where we end up.”

“OK, here we go.” The little girl gently twirled the hands of the clock backwards. As she moved the hands, a brilliant orange fog rolled into the living room and surrounded Chance. The little girl twirled the clock hands backwards again and the orange fog began to swirl around the cardboard box. As she moved the clocks hands around a 3rd and 4th time the orange fog swirled faster and faster.

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. However, time seems to be creeping by.  When Mike finally 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.

Meditation Description: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.

Island Sign: a children’s relaxing story and meditation

Island Sign: a children’s relaxing story and meditation

It’s a lovely day! After tying her shoes for the first time Anora goes with Alice to the enchanted forest to switch the old island sign with their brand new one to welcome visitors.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:04
Narrator: Female
Island Sign Story Excerpt:

Then Anora slipped the shoes onto her feet. As she concentrated on tying the laces she grew quiet. Next, Anora tugged her laces tightly and they slipped right back apart. She sighed and took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath). Now, feeling confident, Anora took the laces in her hands, again, and pictured each step. With that vision fresh in her mind Anora tried again. She tugged at the laces to tighten them. This time they stayed tight!

Anora moved on to her other shoe. Once more, she reminded herself that she knew how to tie her shoes. Anora took the laces in her hands and now both shoes were tied. In celebration, Anora hopped up and began to dance and sing. As a result, her dad peaked around the corner to see what the celebration was about. “I tied my shoes by myself!” Anora sang as she gave him a great big hug.
