Peace Out – our Guided Relaxations for Kids!
Peace Out Series 2 is out!
Peace Out – our guided relaxation and visualisation series for kids – is a favourite with homeschoolers and teachers using it for transitions in the classroom. There are also loads of parents using them at home too especially for bedtime.
The new series is 11 new guided relaxations, available as video and MP3s. In the new series of videos, we open on Jaime speaking into the mic saying hello and getting us ready for the relaxation before fading to a calming image when Jaime invites kids to close their eyes. All 11 videos are already up on the Cosmic Kids App and we will be releasing them steadily to YouTube over late 2018 and into 2019.
Here’s one to watch now on YouTube – the Bye Bye Boat:
Our goals with these guided relaxations for kids:
– Creates a routine which kids look forward to – Jaime’s intro is familiar and repeats phrases across all Peace Outs. It’s all about getting yourself comfortable and feeling calm.
– Helps the kids themselves to learn how they want to approach calm – We want to encourage the kids to take responsibility for their calmness. Aside from needing some quiet to listen, there are no rules about how we do relaxation, just suggestions. Jaime invites the kids to close their eyes if and when they like, just explaining that it really helps as this means you can (for example) be in your own little bubble. She also offers different ways of lying/sitting so the kids can decide what they need to be comfortable enough to make the most of the relaxation.
– Asks the kids to reflect on how they feel at the end – Jaime does this in all of this series of Peace, so we notice how different we feel compared to the beginning. This is important to recognise and value. What does calm feel like compared to high energy? A good learning goal!
– We create context and stories that kids love – bunnies, dragons, stars and many other situations act as the context for explorations of hope, sensation, reflection, love and kindness. This is a lovely space for kids to hang out in – and adults for that matter 🙂
