Since Christmas is so busy and full of changes in routines, anxiety can skyrocket during the holidays for many kids (okay, people in general).

This free deep breathing printable for kids teaches kids how to do deep breathing using a candy cane and is a great visual tool to help them self-regulate. Just trace and breathe. It's so simple, yet effective.
