Butterfly Breathing with Abby Cadabby

Here’s one of the many ways we can take care of our big feelings. It works for grown-ups, too!

Share this video with children and invite them to try it themselves: Hold your arms out and imagine they are magnificent butterfly wings. Slowly raise your wings above your head as you take a slow deep breath in, then lower them as you slowly breathe out. The movement looks a little like a snow angel, but it’s done sitting down or standing up!  

Try the strategy together when children are having big feelings.
