This is a great way for children to work on becoming more present, a vital practice for encouraging mindfulness.

The worksheet opens with a definition of what it means to be present or mindful: “The word ‘present’ can mean a gift, and it also describes what is happening right now, in the moment.”

Next, there are instructions on how to complete the rest of the worksheet: “Sit quietly and pay attention to what is going on right now using your five senses. Reflect on what you experience below.”

There are five sections to fill out based on the five senses:

  • Right now I see…
  • Right now I hear…
  • Right now I am touching…
  • Right now I smell…
  • Right now I feel…
