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

Building a snowman is a great example of a winter heavy work activity that is calming for kids.

But maybe you live somewhere where there is no snow.

Or it's simply too cold to go outside to build a snowman to reap the calming benefits of such a heavy work activity.

Or your child is already minutes away from a meltdown and the last thing you want to do is wrestle your child into their snowsuit to send them outside to build a snowman.

Well, try this snowman deep breathing exercise instead. It's a quick and simple mindfulness and coping strategy that you can do to help them reset (and hopefully avoid a full on meltdown).

A Simple Breathing Exercise for Kids with a Winter Twist

Counting is a great calm down strategy for kids. So is deep breathing. This snowman deep breathing exercise combines the two strategies into one.

You point to the buttons of the snowman, count, and breathe. You could even do the same thing to the snowman's mouth if you really wanted.
