Mindfulness- Rainbow Walk
Everyone is headed back to school, but summer colors are still out in the forest.
Here is a short mindfulness activity that can be done during any transition. The goal of this activity is to observe and notice things around you that are the colors of the rainbow, in rainbow order (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet). When I do this on my own walks, I repeat as many times as the walk allows. With children three times through the rainbow without repeating objects is a good start, and can be expanded or shortened depending on age and diagnosis/attention span.
These pictures are from a rainbow walk in the woods, but this can be done in hallways, the car, or walking to school.
