Reflect and relax with 36 SEL-focused mindful coloring activities for kids.

With a unique combination of mindful coloring illustrations and reflection prompts, Coloring Book and Reflections for Social Emotional Learning effectively combines mindfulness and SEL to be used both in the classroom and at home. Each of the SEL topics features two pages of activities and prompts, mirroring the left and right sides of our brains. The left page (logical) includes a prompt for reflection through journaling or free-drawing and the right page (creative) is an illustration for coloring to promote mindfulness. Topics range from positive self-talk to empathy to trying your best.

This mindful coloring book for kids stands on its own merits yet can be paired with other mindfulness curriculum to further integrate social and emotional learning into your everyday. The thirty-six mindful coloring pages correspond with the thirty-six weeks of the school year, and the SEL writing prompts support the weekly activities in Mindful Classrooms™ by James Butler.

Also available in a Spanish version.
