Mindfulness can benefit young children in a variety of ways, including improved sleep, stress reduction, increased focus/attention, and general feelings of wellbeing. 

To help educators support healthy minds in the classroom, Barefoot Books recently shared a variety of free mindfulness resources. These include printable activity sheets, videos, and more.
