Inspired by square breathing, this free printable Mario question block deep breathing exercise is perfect for kids!

I'm a huge advocate of using your child's interests as a hook to engage your child in learning other things. 

This Mario question block deep breathing exercise for kids is a perfect example. It takes my kids' interest in Mario to teach self-regulation and coping skills. That means, teaching something like deep breathing is instantly more appealing to my kids because they recognize that it's Mario themed.

Also, fun fact: I made my oldest son a question block cake this year for his birthday. One day I'll post it on the blog...

About this Mario Themed Deep Breathing Technique

It's probably pretty obvious at this point that this deep breathing exercise for kids is inspired by the famous question mark block from the Mario franchise...

You can also quickly tell it's based on the popular square breathing technique, where you follow the outline of a square, breathing in and out. In this exercise, you start by breathing in for 4 counts. Then you hold. Then you breathe out for 4 counts. And finally, you rest.

But don't worry, everything is outlined on the printable poster, which you can find below.
