More about our kids' meditations + OMG. I Can Meditate! for Kids :
OMG. I Can Meditate! includes an assortment of guided meditations and visualizations created specifically for kids of all ages. These meditations can be used at home, or at school. They are all free, and they will stay that way.
Lots of Different Themes to Choose From!
We have created guided meditations for kids that cover many different topics including:
Calming Our Bodies & Minds
Being aware of our Thoughts
Being aware of our Emotions
Being aware of our Breathing
Kid-Friendly and Teen Approved
Kids are known for their blazing curiosity (and also their short attention spans). So, we’ve made our kids’ meditations both engaging, and short enough lengths for their age category to keep them from getting bored. We’ve also adapted the language used for three different age groups, kids (6-9), Tweens (10-13), and Teens (14-17) , so make sure they feel “talked to” at their own level.

--- Guided Meditation Script
"Make your body comfortable, and when you’re ready, close your eyes
Let’s start by taking a few deep breaths.
Feel the air filling your tummy as you take a deep breath in thru your nose,
And make a big “aaaah” sound as you let the air out your mouth,
And each time you breathe out, feel your whole body becoming loose and floppy....
Take a few more big breaths like this
Now, you can start breathing normally again,
In and out thru your nose
When you breathe in, think about the word “In”,
And when you breathe out, think about the word “Out”,
Can you hear these words inside your head just by thinking about them,
without making any sound with your mouth,
not even moving your tongue or your lips,
Let’s do this a bit longer,
Thinking about the word “In” when you breathe in,
And thinking about the word “Out” when you breathe out,
Feel how your stomach gets full like a balloon when you breathe in,
And gets smaller again when you let the air out
Now imagine that you are lying out on the grass in a beautiful park
The sun is shining and your eyes are closed
Just relaxing in the sunshine
As you lie there, a very friendly butterfly comes to say hello to you
Can you imagine this butterfly? It can be any colour you choose
The butterfly is fluttering its wings just above your toes....
If you really pay attention, can you feel the soft breeze from the butterfly's wings on your toes?
Now the butterfly is floating along your legs to your knees....
Can you feel a little tingling feeling from its wings on your legs?
If you can’t feel anything, just imagine what it would feel like if you could,
Now the butterfly is fluttering its wings as it moves up to your belly button....
Can you feel it tickling your belly as it flies around?
Try to imagine what the butterfly’s wings look like?
Maybe you can see them, and feel them fluttering at the same time in your imagination?
Now the butterfly is floating up and down your arms,
From your shoulder to your hands and back
Feel it with your imagination as it flies up and down each arm,
And now, just before flying off, the butterfly is coming to wish you a beautiful day,
As it flutters its wings just above your forehead!
See it floating there in your mind,
Feel the fluttering of its wings
If you listen very closely, you might be able to hear them flutter,
And now, off it flies..
Leaving you feeling very warm and cozy,
Just lying in the sunshine...
Now, let’s just sit quietly and breathe for just a bit longer until you hear the bell."
