Mindful Monsters - kids mindfulness activity launches new line

Mindful Monsters, the award-winning activity programme for children and parents from disability equality charity Scope, breaks new ground on 11 February with the launch of its exclusive range of personalised Monster products.  The new collection, available online, includes a wide range of personalised and non-personalised products including clocks, water bottles, cushions, mugs, aprons, greetings cards and much more.

They make fun gifts for children, and many are ideal to take to school. Parents will love their own Monster cushion or apron, while everyone’s personalised place mat will make family meal times a lot more fun. 

Since launching in 2017, the Mindful Monsters programme has been loved by both early years and primary school aged children, as well as parents and teachers. Each month, parents receive a set of seven activity cards featuring the four monsters with their own inspiring theme of activities:

Thinky helps children to focus and concentrate. 

Giggles helps children to see the positive side of things. 

Sparky inspires children to be creative. 

Snug helps calms young minds and helps them to relax. 

Each card offers not only fun things to do, they also help parents make the most of that precious quality time with their children.

Mindfulness is the art of being in the present and paying attention to our thoughts and feelings. The Mindful Monsters activity cards are inspired by this principle and help children to develop emotional resilience and important life skills.  Scope developed Mindful Monsters with the support of mindfulness experts, the activities are specially created to develop a child’s emotional resilience, concentration, kindness and observation.

Si and Anya, parents to Kai aged 3½ years say:

”Kai is 3½ years old and there is always a ‘new’ best thing he is obsessed with! One of his regular highlights is when the Mindful Monsters pack drops through the letter box. Those who have a child will know that getting (and keeping) a child’s attention is a challenge! Kai loves doing Mindful Monsters activities and we love those precious moments it creates for us as a family.

“Since Kai has been doing these activites, he has developed a real sense of people around him and we’ve noticed he’s become more engaged and considerate of other people and things around him.

“He has also developed his self-awareness, confidence and creativity, which we know will stand him in great stead for his future.”

Prices for the personalised products begin at £2.50 for the greetings card and magnet and can be ordered from https://shop.mindfulmonsters.co.uk/
