HOW CAN THIS DOWNLOAD BE USED?

- For character education studies at any grade level 2-12, college, or adults
- To have conversations at ANY level about mindfulness, while also practicing it
- To practice self-care among kids or adults (especially great for morning work on Monday mornings when everyone needs to get back into the school routine!)
- During the first day of school as rotations, centers, or activities for those “down times” where the teacher needs to welcome students, handle paperwork, etc.
- During testing when students are a bit fried and need a break, during inside recess, or really any other time where some sitting and quiet time would be helpful.
- During the end of the year to help students reflect on the year and to fill those extra times when typical academic work may be finished.
- When students need social emotional support these can be used as a way for them to fidget and/or listen to the lesson or discussion being presented.

Depending on the age of the people completing the puzzles, these will NOT be completely colored in one session – which is ok! Relax, pull these out at a specific time each day, and practice mindfulness and relaxation. The puzzle can be completed first, last, or not at all – the options are really up to the teacher or those completing the puzzles.
Thanks for looking!
