The Mindful Kids Spinning Top Game is a fun educational tool that introduces the concept of mindfulness to children aged between 2 and 7 years old.
It combines real and interactive gameplay experiences. In the classroom, it is a valuable resource that can enhance the skills that will be required of children in the 21st century, such as Active Play, self-knowledge, and digital literacy.
The spinning top is the axis of the game, using different discs along with the spinning top children can practise breathing exercises, relaxation, meditation, yoga, massages and mandalas.
Children benefit from mindfulness through "Physical development by practicing yoga and meeting goals for their gross motor skills" and "Personal, social and emotional development by being able to actively manage their feelings, behaviours and emotions as well as gaining self confidence and self awareness." - Jade Loynes (Raw Childhood).
