The pandemic has turned our worlds upside down and with our kids being in and out of schools, it’s sure to add some stress and anxiety that comes from upset routines. We have found some of the best meditation apps to help your kids deal with the strain and create some calm.

 

 

These apps will help your children manage and process their emotions, keep their cool under pressure and help them sleep a little bit better at night.

 

1. HEADSPACE FOR KIDS

 

Kids (and parents) can enjoy fun, engaging activities that teach them the basics of mindfulness. They’ll practice breathing exercises, visualizations and even try some focus-based meditation. Of course, different exercises work best for different ages so they’ve customized the sessions for three age groups: 5 and under, 6-8 and 9-12.

Headspace has also partnered with Barbie and Sesame Street to create a more familiar and comfortable space for kids to focus.
