392. 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.

390. 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.
