But Christmas can be full of anxiety for many people and children. And they might need some extra support self-regulating and coping throughout the holiday season.

A Simple Breathing Exercise for Kids with a Christmas Twist

Triangle breathing is a common deep breathing technique that teaches kids how to deep breathe. So this Santa hat gives the triangle breathing a Christmas twist, much like the Christmas tree breathing or bell breathing exercises do.

It's a simple technique, but it's so effective.

Kids of all ages will find the technique easy to learn, especially when using the free mindfulness poster that's included below.

About the Free Printable Santa Deep Breathing Exercise Poster

This one page printable offers a simple deep breathing technique using a Santa hat theme. I highly recommend laminating the poster for durability.

As for how to do the actual deep breathing technique, simply trace the arrows along the outside of the hat and follow the instructions. Breathe in. Hold. Breathe out. Repeat.
