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.

Dad to the Rescue:a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

Dad to the Rescue:a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

Today’s Story

Owen is inspired and begins to write a story but gets stuck. Fortunately, it’s Dad to the rescue! He helps Owen learn the importance of taking a break to feel refreshed.

Narrator: Male
Dad to the Rescue Story Excerpt:

“How’s it going?” his dad said.
“I’m stuck. I can’t figure out how to start the story.”  Owen said, feeling frustrated.
“You’ve been working pretty hard at this, I think maybe you should take a break.”  Owen’s dad suggested.
“That’s OK, dad. I can do this. I don’t need a break.” Owen said.
“Owen, a break isn’t quitting, it is giving yourself the option to find new ideas by doing something completely different. I take breaks all the time when I am stuck. Then when I come back, I have a fresh new idea. What would you like to do for a break?” his dad asked.
“It looks pretty nice outside. Maybe I’ll play for a bit.” Owen said with a sigh. He still wanted to finish his story.

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

The party looked fun.

Magic in The Sky: a short story and guided meditation for kids

Magic in The Sky: a short story and guided meditation for kids

After the rain, Allie goes outside to splash in puddles. Then she notices some magic in the sky as the sun shines through the clouds. What did she see?

“Allie looked outside.  It had been raining all day.  She had enjoyed the pitter patter of the rain on the roof.  Now, she was ready to go outside and play.  Although the rain had started out with large drops, now it was down to delicate sprinkles.  The steady beat on the roof had slowed and slowed until the only rain sound left was the sound of the trees shaking off the extra water.   Allie decided to ask if she could go outside.  After all, the rain seemed like it had stopped.”

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

Today’s Story (EP319): Girl Power! A short story and guided meditation for kids

A special episode for !

After Max teases her, Mia and her brother learn about women who have made a difference. Believing in girl power, Mia is ready to share what she learned with the world.

Narrator: Female
Today’s Children’s Story Excerpt:

Mia’s mom smiled and said, “You can join the girls and other women who have already spoken up. Malala Yousafzai, even though she is young, continually tells the world it is important that girls receive education. Margaret Thatcher became the Prime Minister of Great Britain and spoke up, encouraging people to accept responsibility for their lives. Both you and your brother can choose any job, if you learn the skills you need and pay attention to opportunities.

You can also change your mind. Julia Child was a spy and then she had an opportunity to try cooking. She had the skills she needed and became a famous chef. Speaking up also helps share different ways of thinking. Temple Grandin has shown people the interesting things we discover when we look at the world through the unique views of different people, even animals. It is important to understand how we all impact each other.”

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