Mindful Me Virtual Program for Youth Ages 3-8

In this ZOOM series, offered in conjunction with the Marshall Public Library, 4-H Youth Development Educator Susan Sloop will begin each lesson by reading aloud a story to introduce various concepts of mindfulness. After reading the story we will do an activity together, virtually of course! Once you register you will receive an email a week prior to the lesson with a list of materials that are needed for the hands-on activity.

Lesson 6: April 19, 2021 - We live in a loud world!  Making time to be quiet is one way to be mindful of our surroundings and thoughts.  In this session, we will read “Charlotte and the Quiet Place” and discover what our own quiet place might look like. 


  • Lesson 7: May 11, 2021 - Yoga is a great way to practice mindfulness because it engages our bodies and minds.  As we read “I am Yoga” we will move through some yoga poses together and pick our favorite ones!
