Create to Connect

Create to Connect, Day 11 – The Mindfulness Project

Today’s challenge is set by Tangled Feet who create original theatre performances, sometimes inside theatres but often in other public spaces. Tangled Feet are delivering their Mindfulness Project through a series of online workshops for families on YouTube. Today’s challenge is one of their twelve favourite mindful activities – and you can find the rest here!

Create a sensory storm! Find a container to put some water in (a jar, a pot or a sink would work well.) Put into your container something that you can swirl around. You might like to use glitter, beads, food dye, cotton wool or even rice. Stir or shake the water, and watch the stormy swirls. Watch it and take big, deep breaths until the water is still and calm.

Emily from Tangled Feet made a Storm in a Jar. You can find many more mindful activities to do at home on their YouTube channel here.

If you have more time … 
Tangled Feet have got 12 mini mindful exercises like these. If you would like to have a go at another one, find the list here.

How did you feel before and after you did this challenge? When you feel a bit ‘stormy’, what helps you to feel better?

Share your work in a way that works for you – online or offline. You could join our friendly Facebook group, keep a journal, share in a WhatsApp group, with your friends and family, or on social media. The choice is yours.
