Friendships are very important to children, but not always easy to find or maintain. In this course we will look at topics such as what makes a good friend, learning to appreciate the things we have in common with others and valuing and respecting differences. Through child centred games, discussions, crafts and short meditations, the children will learn important skills for developing healthy, lasting friendships with others.
About Kids Club
Kids Club aims to develop and nurture the positive qualities in children through meditation and positive thinking. Each class is organised around a Buddhist theme such as love, kindness and patience and will include a range of fun activities including story-telling, drama and crafts. Children will also be gently guided in a simple meditation and given techniques to gain focus, confidence and consideration for others. Meditation is a simple, effective method that over time helps us to become more open, friendly, relaxed and happy.
All families are welcome, no previous experience of Buddhism or meditation is necessary. Children must be accompanied by an adult, who are welcome to join in the meditation if they wish. The classes are designed for age range 5-12 years.
In the class pictured below, the kids learned how to see the good in others by wearing special heart or star-shaped glasses that they made in the class.
