Slow It Down
Launch Slow It Down
When children experience big feelings such as separation anxiety, grown-ups can help children feel safe and offer ways to help them calm down. Becoming absorbed in a calming activity such as looking at mesmerizing images or creating a new kind of art can soothe children. Slow It Down guides children in breathing exercises and relaxing activities. Children can choose from six activities: drawing in sand, stamping in glitter, “playing” in slime, experimenting with calming musical tones, and watching mesmerizing slow-motion video. Play together or let children have some time to themselves.
