Not just another game: mindful play for the whole family

16 July 2021

Keeping kids entertained is hard at the best of times. But in the era of COVID-19, parents are finding even more creative ways to keep children from using the walls as a colouring canvas, making a fort with every piece of furniture, and otherwise causing household chaos!

Breathe a sigh of relief because Hinkler has good news: Junior Explorers Games are here!

This brand new range of innovative activities will introduce your little explorer to a whole new world of mindful play.

Each game comes with a parent guide and kids’ tips, so you can learn and play together. And with seven exciting games in total, there’s something for everyone.

Keep reading for a sneak peek of some of our favourite games!

Yoga Spin

Can you do a frog pose? What about a unicorn pose? Challenge your family members and discover who will achieve expert yogi status!

This family fitness game is a fun introduction to the calming practice of yoga. The game is simple: spin the wheel and hold the pose for as long as you can!

Kids will be so busy having fun, they won’t even realise they are learning about the positive impacts of physical health on wellness.

Work It Out

I capture moments in time. I use special lights. I work in a studio. Guess what I do!

This awesome role play activity encourages players to explore different occupations and work out what they are from the clues provided.

It’s a fun way to encourage kids to use their problem-solving skills, and the wacky questions on the back of each card prompt players to use their imagination. For example: which three props would you take to a car photoshoot?

Plus, it’s a great way to remind young ones that they can be whatever they want to be.

A-Z Mindful Me Jigsaw Puzzle

Start your day with a mindful mantra!

The A–Z Mindful Me Jigsaw Puzzle is the perfect way to introduce kids to mindfulness terms and techniques in a gentle, enjoyable way.

As you piece together the beautiful puzzle, you’ll discover a mindful word and mantra for each letter of the alphabet. The memorable phrases like ‘When I give my body rest, I recharge, I feel my best’, are sure to stick with little explorers long after they have put in the last piece.

The Hinkler team is proud to share these brand new activities, and we hope they encourage kids (and parents!) to embrace mindfulness in their daily lives.
