30 Mindful Drawing Tasks

PowerPoint | 32 pages|Grades: 2 - 6

30 drawing tasks to promote mindfulness in your classroom.

The lives of today’s students are jam-packed with action and activity. For many of our students, the sheer amount of “things” happening in their lives can lead to a heightened sense of stress and anxiety. For this reason, there is great value in teaching your students the practice of mindfulness.

Drawing is a tried and true mindfulness technique. It enables us to be calm and fully present in the moment by putting pencil to paper.

You can incorporate these drawing tasks into your daily or weekly schedule as a way of promoting mindfulness in your classroom. They also work well as an indoor recess activity or short brain break in the middle of the day.

Display one of the tasks in the PowerPoint on your whiteboard or screen and set a timer. You might also like to play some soothing music in the background so that your students can unwind and find their center.
