Stackable Sensory Wall Art - "Breathe" Pinwheels
It is well-established that breathing helps the brain! There are both physical and psychological benefits to taking deep, calm breaths. Deep, breathing can slow your heart rate, lower your blood pressure and even sharpen your focus. Breathing as part of an intentional strategy to be mindful has even been found to improve impulse control in children and adults by giving time and space for a perspective check.
Our "Breathe" pinwheel sensory wall art set provides multisensory feedback to teach both children and adults to learn to master the essential calming strategy of deep controlled therapeutic breathing. These beautiful designs can bring a "WOW-FACTOR" to any empty wall and is perfect for classrooms, clinics, waiting rooms, childcare facilities, sensory rooms, and bedrooms.
All of our sensory boards/frames are designed to promote mindfulness, regulate behavior, stimulate visual and tactile development, teach cause-and-effect relationships, and promote focus.
Our sensory boards are extremely high quality, handmade, and solid wood with a blackboard canvas that can be written on with chalk or blackboard pens so you can add drawings, personal messages, and breathing instructions. Flower pinwheels are made with durable plastic on sturdy wooden dowels.
Here's an example of a simple breathing exercise for you and your young ones:
This exercise allows us to see how different ways of breathing affect how our minds and bodies feel.
Step 1: With a pinwheel for your child and yourself, sit with your back straight and your body relaxed.
Step 2: Blow on your pinwheels together using long, deep breaths, and notice how you feel. Do you feel calm and relaxed? Is it easy or hard to sit still?
Step 3: Now blow on the pinwheels using short, quick breaths. How does your body feel now? Do you feel the same way after breathing quickly as you did after breathing slowly?
Step 4: Now blow on the pinwheels normally. How does this feel?
Step 5: What did you notice about how different ways of breathing make you feel?
