Star Breathing Board
Designed to help children practice their breathing techniques, this handcrafted star breathing board invites a unique and quickly effective approach to mindfulness practice. As your child traces around each point of the star, they breathe in and breathe out. They can do this with their finger or by guiding the small handmade wooden ball around the board. Engraved on each board are the words "inhale" and "exhale" for a gentle reminder to return to the breath and practice connection to their mind and body.
Breathing boards are a brilliant way to help your child practice the art of mindfulness and gratitude. Taking a few minutes out of their day to sit with their board and trace the lines can help them regulate their nervous system and strengthen their capacity for focus and inner reflection. This open-ended centering activity can be used throughout the day and serves as a valuable resource for children who struggle with anxiety or overstimulation.

Encourage your child to dedicate a few minutes to his or her breathing board each day. For example, maybe your child works with the breathing board before you gather as a family to read bedtime stories. Help your child experiment with this mindfulness practice until he or she settles on a daily ritual that feels just right. Does your child prefer the lights on or off? Eyes open or closed? Peaceful music playing or total silence?
