Easy and fun everyday Buddhism activities for kids ages 2 to 8
Growing up can be hard, with lots of big changes and confusing feelings―but practicing Buddhism can help turn that confusion into curiosity and excitement about the world and our place in it. Using easy-to-follow meditations for kids, interactive activities, and vivid retellings of classic Buddhist stories, Buddhism for Kids brings the Dharma, or Buddhist teachings, to kids. Buddhism for Kids makes the practice fun and interactive.
Organized by time of day―morning, day, and night―the book is designed to meet your little one's energy level, or wind them down for bed. Kids will learn how to check in with nature by greeting trees, express their feelings by drawing monsters, show kindness through a surprise gift, and apply the lessons learned through incredible stories to their own life.
Buddhism for Kids includes:
- Dharma play―Watch your kids bring the teachings to life any time of the day through fun games and creative activities.
- Stepping stones―Find calm for the body, mind, and spirit with unique meditations your kids can do before school, during the day, or right before bed.
- Anytime story―Discover imaginative, illustrated retellings of classic Buddhist stories― each including a short moral to reflect on.
Make your own spiritual path with Buddhism for Kids, the kid-friendly guide to everyday peace of mind.
