Best Balance: a guided meditation and kid’s story

Best Balance: a guided meditation and kid’s story

Sig the skateboard has the best balance, and waits eagerly to play. But today the skateboard is playing with a new learner. How will they do?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:00

Narrator: Female

Best Balance Excerpt:

Sig giggled too, ready to play. The girl placed the skateboard on the ground and stepped on, one foot on a yellow-green swirl and the other on a blue-purple one. Sig wobbled back and forth, as the girl balanced herself. Sig began to feel nervous, worrying that the girl might fall off. The skateboard tried her best to hold steady, but as the girl wobbled, so did Sig. Then after one big wobble the girl stumbled off of the skateboard. Sig took a deep dragon breath in and out, (deep breath) as she saw that the girl was ok. The girl took a deep dragon breath in and out, (deep breath) as she readied herself to try the skateboard again.

Silly Scooters: a children’s story and meditation

While two silly scooters are zipping around on a driveway, they notice a little hill. Listen as they have some fun on a beautiful afternoon.

Narrator: Male

Silly Scooters Excerpt:

The boy sat down on one scooter and began zipping around, and the girl hopped on the other. Su and Skyler smiled, happy to be playing. The two scooters zigged and zagged around each other. As the scooters rolled across the top of the driveway Su noticed they were at the top of a hill and said to Skyler, “Wouldn’t it be fun if we rolled down the hill.”
“Oh, I don’t know Su. We might go too fast. And then how will we get back up. I’d rather stay here.” As Skyler said that, one kid scooted to the edge of the hill with Su, then with a “Whee!!” off they went. Skyler felt afraid to look. However, the boy giggled and rolled to the edge of the hill.

Laughter in the Sun: kids’ relaxation and story

Laughter in the Sun: kids’ relaxation and story

Sara the slide loves the laughter in the sun as the children play with her and feels a little sad when they go to the swing set instead. Will they return?

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

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 11:27

Narrator: Female

Laughter in the Sun Story Excerpt:

The twisty slide was happy to see the children.  They ran right to Sara, and climbed right up to the top of the slide.  They giggled as they slid down the slide, one at a time.  When both children reached the bottom, they climbed up to the top of the slide again.  Sara was so happy to have the children playing around her.
After the third time sliding down the twists and turns, the children ran over to Savannah Swing set.  Savannah was just as excited as Sara to see the children, and was happy that, now, they were swinging with her.

The swings zipped back and forth, higher and higher.  As the twisty slide watched the children play with the swing set, she felt a little sad.  Sara wanted more time to play with the children.  She sighed and took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath). The twisty slide realized that she was happy for her friend Savannah.  The swing set enjoyed playing with the children too.  After breathing and thinking, Sara the twisty slide was sure that the children would come back and play with her again.  She just needed to wait.

Terrific Toys: kids’ relaxation and story

Terrific Toys: kids’ relaxation and story

There are some terrific toys stuck in the bottom of the toy box. Will Alyssa the doll and Uli the unicorn be able to help them out?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 5:59

Narrator: Male

Terrific Toys Story Excerpt:

“Oh dear.” Alyssa said. “You’ve been stuck down here a while, haven’t you?”

Then Uli asked, “Would you like to be moved where the kids can find you?”

The toys responded, “We’d love that. Do you think the kids will play with us again?”

“Of course!” Alyssa encouraged. “They just need to see you.”

Uli added. “They’ll be excited to see you again. It will be like you’re a brand new toy! Sometimes, the kids forget to put us where we belong, and that’s how we get lost.”

The kind doll shared their plan. “Blocks we just need to get you back into the block container. Cars, same thing, if you’re with the other cars the kids will play with you.”

The unicorn continued, “Books, you belong on the bookshelf. Puzzle pieces, we have to get you back to the puzzle before the kids discover you’re missing. They might stop playing with the puzzle if we don’t. And stuffed animals, you need to be with the other stuffed animals.”

The toys perked up, feeling confident in the plan, and moved to one side of the toy box. Now Uli and Alyssa had space to organize they got right to work.

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.

Creative Cars: a mindful story and meditation for kids

Creative Cars: a mindful story and meditation for kids

Creative cars Bozz and Rozz make a new friend, Mozz. The toy cars share the story of how their friends, the blocks helped them get back on their track.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:44
Narrator: Male
Creative Cars Story Excerpt:

Now that they were relaxed Rozz began the story. “One day Bozz and I were feeling a bit curious and decided to explore beyond this table. We drove right up to the edge and peered over it.  A puppy dog pillow grinned up at us from the floor.
Knowing the pillow would give us a soft landing we decided to zip right off the table and onto the squishy pillow.”

Bozz added, “So, we launched off the table. The puppy pillow caught us easily. We giggled and giggled, excited by our big jump. Our gas tanks were sore from laughing as we sank into the big pillow and relaxed. Once we settled down Rozz said, ‘OK. let’s get back up to the table.’ I tried to roll forward, but the pillow was too soft. ‘Rozz do you see a way back up?’ I asked.
