Italy’s Chia Laguna launches ‘Mini Mindfulness’ children’s activities
POSTED 19 Apr 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
Chia Laguna, Italian Hospitality Collection’s five-star family resort in Sardinia, has unveiled a series of ‘Mini Mindfulness’ children’s activities designed to help little ones step away from screens, build their confidence and recharge ahead of the start of the academic year in September.

The activities, which include ‘smiling yoga’, al-fresco painting, smoothie-making and home-made spa treatments, aim to encourage stressed-out kids to log off, relax and reconnect with the physical world around them.

At the resort’s kids’ club, each day will start with a ‘little muscle awakening’ session, a series of simple exercises designed to soothe both body and mind. The physical activity will continue with ‘smiling yoga’, a technique combining laughter with yoga and breathing exercises. The practice is designed to promote physical expression and emotional development while building self-confidence and leadership skills.

Al-fresco painting lessons will give budding artists the chance to express themselves while enjoying the resort’s Le Dune Garden.

Tours of Chia Laguna’s herbal garden will provide a sensory experience, where aspiring botanists will be taught to recognise and use various herbs for food and health purposes, before heading back to the kids’ club to put their learnings into practice.

Children will be shown how to combine the herbs they have foraged with fresh fruit and honey to create their own face masks, with the remaining herbs mixed with juices and soda to whip up mocktails.
