PK - 5 Taking a Mindful Walk Outside

Go on a mindful walk. Ask your child to take account of what they sense as you walk around. Taking the time to determine what you see, smell, feel and hear will help ground you in the moment. Have your child focus on using one of their senses at a time in order to help them narrow their focus.
