Kids for Kids a Mindfulness Movement will be offering a one day workshop for boys this FRIDAY, February 17! Are you looking for a fun and enriching day for your son? Try out our retreat day for boys! Throughout the day, your son will be involved in mindful activities such as YOGA, KID-FRIENDLY MEDITATION, TEAM BUILDING, STOP MOTION video, make your own fluffy oil infused SLIME and MORE! Registration is still open, go to mindfulkidsforkids.com to register TODAY!
All of the activities that we've created here at Kids for Kids are geared towards helping kids build new skills, learn how to be open, use mental and physical focus and cultivate awareness. We believe these are the cornerstones of what mindfulness is! Do you think your son would be skeptical or unsure? Many are, but they wouldn't know until they give it a try! Many boys were surprised how much fun they had while learning ways to be mindful!! We've created a half day option this time around to allow unsure kids to try it out.
MWe are also including some fun with STOP MOTION VIDEO! We all know that technology is here to stay so why not create some skill sets that will allow your son to use it in a productive way. Stop motion animation (also called called stop frame animation) is animation that is captured one frame at a time, with physical objects that are moved between frames. When you play back the sequence of images rapidly, it creates the illusion of movement!! Think, LEGO movie! That's how it's done.
The staff at Kids for Kids will be working closely in small groups while boys work together to create a fun interactive video about what it means to "chill", "relax" and "be aware." Each boy will create three to four frames that will be joined with others. The idea is to teach team collaboration, creativity and how to use "mental and physical focus." Stop motion takes time but with the help of a few adults and the integration of the silliness boys naturally have, it can be DONE! Check out the fun you tube video we've attached.
