Last week- on Saturday the 22nd of June 2019- to celebrate International Yoga Day for children Yogaworthit in partnership with Essence of Good Health Free Yoga ran a whole day of activities in Croydon from 10:15 to 16:00 aimed at children, young people and their adult or carer.
One of the workshop that it ran was a Mindfulness Slimetastic Lab for children and young people. During the workshop, children got to use their critical thinking and investigative skills to make, adjust and design the slime that would suit their sensory need and mood of the moment best by using colours, glitters, scent, and various textures including pompons.
During the session, all participants were focused, engaged, curious, enthusiastic, happy and peaceful.
They got to take the slime home to use as a tool to get themselves to a zone where their mind is free of worries and therefore feeling happy, relaxed and ready to learn.
Marsha- mother of two children aged between 3-9 years old- commented:
My two really enjoyed the slime workshop so that you very much Elodie. It was creative, messy and fun! Perfect for them.
