Dump Truck Delight: a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

Dump Truck Delight: a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

The construction crew is tasked with making a strong foundation for a house. This project is a dump truck delight, and Danny the dump truck thoroughly enjoys it.

“What are we making today?!”  Danny asked Ellie.
“I don’t know, Danny.  I guess it’s a surprise.”  Then the little excavator spotted Dizzy the concrete mixer.  Moreover Dizzy drove over towards them, already spinning. What could they be making?  Ellie looked for Ronald the Roller.  “Where’s Ronald?”  She asked.
“Oh, he’s getting a new seat for his driver.”  Dizzy said.
“Well. I guess that means we’re not making a road today.” Danny said.
Ellie smiled at the little dump truck.  “I think you’re right.”

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

The Bubbly Car Wash: a bedtime story and relaxation for kids

Today’s Children’s Story (EP59): The Bubbly Car Wash: a bedtime story and relaxation for kids

Colin the car is dirty and goes to the car wash. He sees other dirty cars in line and wonders what they’ll look like clean.

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.
Narrator: Male
Children’s Story Excerpt:

Slowly the garage door rolled up and away. Colin blinked, as sunlight spilled through his windshield. The little red car closed his eyes again and smiled, enjoying the warmth of the sun. He sighed happily and slowly opened his eyes to the bright world. Colin looked up at the sky. It was light blue without a single white cloud disrupting the color. The little red car looked at his hood, doors, trunk, and sides in the sunlight. His bright red paint faded away under the dirt. It was definitely time for a wash. Since the day was warm and bright, it seemed like as good a day as any. Colin saw the driver approaching and hoped that the driver would take him somewhere to get clean.

Magical Chair: a bedtime story on acceptance for kids

Magical Chair: a bedtime story on acceptance for kids

After moving to a new home, Winfield the wheelchair decides to help Brian find new friends.  Will the magical chair find them at a colorful park?

Kids meet individuals of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Therefore, learning acceptance of others with disabilities is important to help children understand that differences are ok and valuable. Dim the lights, get your favorite blanket or sleep buddy and snuggle up for Be Calm on Ahway Island Podcast with a soothing story encouraging empathy.

Here’s an excerpt from today’s bedtime story on acceptance, Magical Chair:

The little wheelchair waited patiently while the boy buckled into the comfy seat. Winfield the wheelchair could tell Brian felt lonely in their new town. The family had just moved in and the little boy missed all his friends. Outside the sun shined brightly on the winding sidewalk. That gave Winfield an idea. Maybe Brian would meet some kids if they explored the neighborhood. Brian’s dad must have understood what Winfield was thinking. He suggested, “Why don’t we go outside for a walk?

Today’s Meditation for kids: Feel your body fill with warmth and love as you send your loving energy to the world.

Dragon Float: a short story for kids

Dragon visits the boats at the dock. While swimming around them Dragon discovers the boats are floating.  Can Dragon float too?

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

Here’s an excerpt from today’s short story:

Dragon looked at each boat. They all did look relaxed. So, Dragon decided to try floating. With a deep breath in and out (deep breath) dragon relaxed and laid back in the calm, warm water. Lying still, the dragon felt the gentle waves rolling, back and forth, back and forth. Everything felt so peaceful Dragon almost fell asleep. Then Dragon realized, “I’m floating too!” And jumped up in excitement. The boats giggled at Dragon’s enthusiasm.
