the senses walk

guiding children in mindfulness


A fun and easy mindful activity to do with your children at home or somewhere in nature is the Senses Walk. Find a short path and start by standing together in one place for a few moments.

Then take 5 steps together and invite them to join you in sharing “I see…”. Then take another 5 steps together and suggest another sense:

  • I see..
  • I smell..
  • I hear..
  • I feel..

Take it slow. Don’t rush.

Encourage them to remain quiet while walking and instead focusing on observing their surroundings using their senses.

This is a lovely mindful activity that can be done almost anywhere with your child.
