Mindfulness is a great way to connect with your family while also strengthening your emotional, intellectual and self reliant skills. The following post was originally posted on MyMindfulMat.com.

There is something spectacular about every season. Take time with your children this fall to notice the unique attributes of autumn. Here are a few fall mindfulness activity ideas to use with your My Mindful Mat to get you started.

1. Fall Breathing 

Go outside. Following the “Breathe” prompt in the board book, take deep breaths in and out. Pay attention to how the cold fall air feels in your mouth and lungs. 

2. Leaf Shapes 

Use your Mat (or other item) as a tracing board. Use fallen leaves to outline the shapes.

3. Leaf Crunch

Take a handful of leaves in your hand. Hold them next to your ear as you squeeze your hand tightly. What do you hear?
