Colorful Crayons: a bedtime meditation and story

Colorful Crayons: a bedtime meditation and story

Colorful crayons rest in their container. Soon they begin to slide out onto the table. What masterpieces will the crayons help create today?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:18

Narrator: Male

Colorful Crayons Excerpt:

“I wonder what we’ll help create today.” Soon all the crayons awakened, eager to do their part in creating today’s art.

As the crayons murmured excitedly, one of the kids picked up the box and turned it sideways, gently sliding the crayons out of their bed and onto the table.

“Whee!” Yellow giggled as she tumbled out.

Green laughed as he rolled across the table, only stopped by the pad of paper.

Blue jumped out of the container shouting, “Let’s go!” while Violet held on to the edge of the box, not wanting to leave her comfy bed. It took a little shake for her to leave the warm container, followed by Brown and Black, who had been waiting for Violet so they could join the fun. Now that all the crayons were out, they all took a deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath) as they waited to see what they would be creating today.

Cheerful Chat: a mindful story for kids

Cheerful Chat: a mindful story for kids

Roly the robot want to learn more but first she needs to be able to talk to Billy and Emily. Roly is looking forward to having a cheerful chat!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:13

Narrator: Female

Cheerful Chat Excerpt:

At that moment the kids hurried back to the table. They seemed to have a plan. Roly listened intently as Emily picked up the tablet smiling. Billy smiled too as he placed his favorite green train down in front of the robot. Roly felt a cozy warmth fill her head as she heard. “This is a toy train.”

“Interesting…” she thought absorbing every detail of the item in front of her. Billy moved the train across the table from them. Then the robot felt warmth fill her head again, as she heard the tablet whisper “Move to the train.”

The little robot rolled over to the train. Then she decided to see if the tablet would deliver a message from her to Billy and Emily.

Roly thought about what she would like to say. Once she had decided, the little robot thought about how the tablet communicated with her. Roly had noticed a friendly warmth in her head just before she heard the tablet speak. Roly wondered if that was how they communicated.

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

Robot Build: a mindful children’s story

Robot Build: a mindful children’s story

Today’s the day Billy and Emily work together on their robot build. Listen to hear how they cooperate, and how their robot turns out.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:08

Narrator: Male

Robot Build Excerpt:

Emily sighed. She knew her big brother had already read the manual twice. Emily also knew the look on Billy’s face. He needed to read it one more time. So even though Emily was eager to get started, she decided she would let her brother finish reading the instructions before suggesting that they begin the build. Instead she decided to try something else. “While you’re reading, I’ll organize the parts.” Emily suggested.

“Good idea!” Billy said as he turned to the last page of instructions.

Emily set a mat on the table and gently tipped the box to slide everything out on the table. Once she could see everything in the kit, she began to group the parts. On the mat Emily played a matching game with all the little pieces. Screws in one pile, tubes for the frame in another all sorted by size. She placed the larger parts for the robot’s body in the center of the mat.

Billy smiled and set the instruction booklet on the table. “Ok! Are you ready?” he asked his sister.

Today’s Meditation: Draw gentle shapes in the soothing sand as you prepare for today’s story.

The Air Show: a soothing kid’s story when you need a break

The Air Show: a soothing kid’s story when you need a break

Holly, Hawk, and Herb the airplanes are excited as they get ready for the air show. Each plane will share their specialty.
Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Connor’s Conundrum this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “The Air Show,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:10

Narrator: Female

The Air Show Excerpt:

Holly, Hawk and Herb felt a sense of adventure as they thought about what the day held in store for them.  Today, the three little airplanes were flying in an air show.   It was something completely new for all of them.  Holly felt excited to bring some delight to the people watching, Herb felt happy to be with his friends, and that his flight would be low to the ground.  No high loops for him.  Hawk felt thrilled that he was about to show everyone what he could do.  The three little airplanes waited eagerly for their turn in the show.  “Let’s take some deep dragon breaths so we are calm and ready.”  Holly suggested.

“That’s a great idea.”  Herb said.  “I know I could use a little extra focus.”

“That’s right we want to be safe, and have fun.” Hawk added.

The three little planes took deep dragon breaths, in and out (deep breath), and pictured their routine in their minds.  They took another deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), and wished the people watching a delightful day.  With one more deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), the planes felt focused and ready for their big moment.

They heard the announcer call out “Now, put your hands together for Holly, Hawk, and Herb as they get ready for their first flight in this air show!”  It was time!

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