Brief Content

Today just a little different from usual… Let me introduce you to this wonderful meditation card deck for kids.

By providing 30 beautiful illustrations of the powers of animals and creatures in nature, your child will become aware of all the qualities within himself. Each card offers an affirmation and a short meditation or activity which helps children to gain more control over their own emotions, thoughts and actions.

The cards are over-sized and very attractive because of the amazing, colorful illustrations made by Alexander Vidal.

The beautiful card deck is accompanied by a handy booklet with information on how to use the cards and some tips to help you choose activities tailored to your child’s needs.

Ideal for children between 4 and 10 that need to be more focused and have to calm their monkey mind. The meditation activities and exercises help them experience ways to regulate themselves and deal with overwhelming emotions.

Younger children can perform the exercises under the supervision of an adult. Older ones are able to do it independently.
Adults will also be attracted to these cards. You can for example pick a daily card or go through the deck and let your intuition guide you to a certain card.





Overall Rating

This card deck is one of my favorite child friendly meditation tools! It’s very suitable to work on socio-emotional skills.

I love to use it with children in my private practice, as well as with my little niece.
Great as a present for a child or for yourself! 😉

Very attractive both in design and highly developed in terms of content, I would like to reward this card deck with 5 stars:
