Looking for some deep breathing exercises to teach the kids? Try this fall themed technique and grab a copy of the free printable poster too!

I'm a big fan of teaching kids how to do deep breathing.

It's just one of many techniques my oldest has found helpful for coping with his anxiety.

When it comes to teaching kids deep breathing techniques and strategies, using a visual cue is often quite helpful. Especially when they can trace their finger around the shape as a way to keep them grounded.

This free printable deep breathing poster is a wonderful visual cue with a fall theme that will have your kids mastering this whole deep breathing thing in no time.

A Simple Breathing Exercise for Kids with an Autumn Twist

This fall leaf breathing exercise is a twist on star breathing where you trace around a star while you breathe in and out, over and over. But obviously substitute a colorful leaf for the star.

The technique is pretty straightforward to do and can be great for kids of any age to learn. Yes, even those big kids (aka adults) that you know could use a bit more calm and mindfulness practice in their life.
