Need an activity that helps to teach mindfulness and keeps hands busy and engaged? Check out this lesson plan from the UW Madison Division of Extension educators. It teaches the acronym STOP (Stop what you are doing, Take a few deep breaths, Observe your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, Proceed with whatever you were doing) when beginning to feel stressed. It also gives directions on how to make "Mindful Putty" - a thicker than slime, aromatherapy tool to help decrease stress!
