Calming Activities

Peace Basket for when somebody needs some quiet, alone time. Contains a whelk shell for the girls to hold up to their ears to hear the ocean (they have to be very still and quiet to hear the sounds of the "waves"), a finger labyrinth to trace, a cinnamon stick to smell, a book to read (When I Make Silence by Jennifer Howard), and our Starry Night Bottle to shake and then watch the "stars" settle to the bottom.

Setting the Peace Table: Children & Conflict Resolution

Peace education should encompass a major part of every child development and early childhood program. I love this idea of creating a peace table in the classroom and even at home too ! Setting the Peace Table: Children & Conflict Resolution
