While lying on their backs, ask your child to stiffen every part of their bodies, and be like spaghetti before it is cooked. Slowly count to 3. Then ask your child to completely relax while you slowly count to 3. Tell them to be like cooked spaghetti.
This is a fun way to calm down and relax! It’s also a great way to teach your child body awareness – what it feels like to be tense and relaxed.
