Have a Superifficextramarvamazinfabutastic year!

Help build childrens confidence and self-esteem with this affirmation wall chart.

It is great for putting on the fridge, bedroom or classroom wall.

We have been producing a yearly affirmation calendar for a few years now and have so much lovely feedback from parents and teachers saying children love them. We start getting requests for it in September! 

This year is our special 20th anniversary year, we wanted to  create something special for our 21st birthday

We struggled to find the right word for it and so we came up with our own.

Superifficextramarvamazinfabutastic Can you say it? Can you say it 3 times really fast?

We just know children are going to have so much fun repeating it and it is will be a great way to encourage them to repeat their affirmations and foster more joy and positivity. 

The wall charts SOLD OUT last year so order soon if you would like one in your home or school. 

They make great Christmas stocking fillers or give one to your childs school teacher for the classroom.

Gift of Gratitude - Creating Streets of Positivity

Relax Kids coach Louise Savage had a great idea to encourage children to put up a picture in their window and show what they are grateful for.

Neighbours can go for a walk and see all the Gifts of Gratitude in their street.

Download the Gifts of Gratitude PDF and choose a Star or a Gift. Colour it in and add a positive word or something that you are grateful for.

You could even decorate with some battery LED lights.

Please do send to all your friends and neighbours and any families you think might like to join in so we can fill as many streets and neighbourhoods with positivity and joy this Christmas.

Read Emma and Amys experience of coming to Baby Mindful classes as new mothers

I started coming to baby mindfulness when my wee boy was 3 months old. Working in mental health, mindfulness was something that I was passionate about integrating into my daily life. However, I will admit that despite my knowledge and experience, as a first time mum I found it incredibly hard to be mindful in the early days and constantly worried about whether I was doing a good enough job.
Baby Mindful classes to allow you to take time out to just focus on you and your baby which helps you to put the crappy day you had yesterday behind you and feel more optimistic about the day ahead, even if you and your baby are going through a challenging phase! The exercises help you to become more in tune with your mind and body which helps you to become more in tune with your baby and just take each moment as it comes.
I always feel calmer and more confident after classes and look forward to returning for the next block. Emma

Join our Baby Mindful coach training will be running on December 5th and December 12th.
