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.

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

Let’s Play: a bedtime story and mindful story for kids

Let’s Play: a bedtime story and mindful story for kids

Let’s play as Danny and Dory, the dump trucks, race to see who is the fastest. Ellie the excavator gives the signal and they’re off!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:01
Narrator: Male
Let’s Play Story Excerpt:

Dory grinned at Danny. “Do you want to race to see who can move the rocks faster?”

“Great idea!” Danny said. He was up for a challenge. Both dump trucks were sure that they would win the race.

Ellie smiled and said. “Alright then, go line up by the gravel pile. I’ll count down, so you know when to start.”

“OK!” Danny and Dory said together, and they rolled over to the pile, ready for Ellie to start filling their beds. Why don’t you two take some deep dragon breaths while load you up.

“That’s a great idea.” Dory said.

The dump trucks took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath). Ellie rumbled up to the pile of gravel and scooped up the little rocks. Danny and Dory took another deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath). Ellie positioned her scoop over Dory’s bed. Rocks flowed into her bed rolling like thunder. The two dump trucks took one more, deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath). Ellie rolled over to Danny. A soothing rumble filled the air, as the little rocks cascaded into Danny’s bed.

Before long both dump trucks were full. Danny and Dory rumbled, eagerly waiting for Ellie to signal the start of their race.

“OK,” Ellie said, “Ready? Set? Go!”

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

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!  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.  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.

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.

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.

Dragon’s New Toy: a mindful children’s story

Dragon’s New Toy: a mindful children’s story

Dragon finds a beautiful rose garden and lays down to rest, snuggling with a cozy blanket. Will Dragon’s new toy help Dragon find a new friend?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:43
Narrator: Male
Dragon’s New Toy Story Excerpt:

Enjoying the soft floral fragrance, Dragon held the blanket up to its face and nuzzled it.  Feeling calm, happy, and secure Dragon hugged the blanket once again. Dragon realized someone loved this bright yellow blanket and was probably missing it.
Slowly, Dragon walked along.  The trees seemed to be pointing Dragon down a particular path. Slowly, and deliberately stepping to avoid the tree roots jutting out from the ground, Dragon walked along the twisting and turning path.  Up ahead, Dragon noticed a sunbeam had weaved through the tree canopy, lighting up the forest floor.  Reaching the sunbeam, Dragon stopped, closed its eyes, and enjoyed the warmth of the light on its skin.

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