10 Best Meditation Tools For Kids
Whether your child is new to meditation and you want to make this practice more appealing or if your child has been meditating for a while, here are some of my favorite meditation tools for kids that are simple, healing, and fun to use.
1. A Meditation Cushion
Sitting on the floor for meditation can be uncomfortable for kids. A a meditation cushion is a simple meditation tool that can make your child more comfortable to meditate and, in turn, enjoy their practice more.
2. A Crystal Sound Bowl
Sound healing is a great thing to incorporate into your child’s meditation practice. Get you and your child a crystal sound bowl and incorporate it into your meditation practice. Keep in mind that crystal sound bowls are crystal and therefor, fragile.
I wouldn’t recommend this meditation tool if you have aggressive or younger kids who could easily break this. But still, crystal sound bowls are extremely powerful. I personally love this 12 Inch Ohm crystal sound bowl.
3. A Tibetan Sound Bowl
There are 2 kinds of sound bowls, crystal and Tibetan. While crystal sound bowls are made of crystal and are more delicate, Tibetan sound bowls are made of copper and metals which are much more child-safe.
A Tibetan sound bowl is a very simple meditation tool for kids to use and very enjoyable to listen to once understand the basics. See the (child safe) sound bowl pictured above by clicking here on Shamans Market.
4. My 20-Day Kids Mindfulness Workbook
Don’t underestimate the power of prompts for a kids’ meditation practice. Sometimes, all a child needs to get into their meditation is a good prompt. My workbook has 20 days of min-meditations that you can use as tools to prompt your child’s meditation practice.
5. A Chakra Balancing Bracelet
A chakra balancing bracelet has one bead for each chakra each made of a corresponding crystal for each chakra. this can be a great meditation tool for anxious kids who need something physical to focus on while they sit in silence. Check out the one I got by clicking here.
6. Essential Oils + Diffuser
Aromatherapy is a powerful meditation tool for anybody! With a diffuser, kids get to pick any scent they want to use for their daily meditation or yoga practice.
And on a science note, by meditating to scents repeatedly, the brain will start to associate the state of mind they are in with the smell and it helps kids to fall into that meditative state with more ease when they release that scent again!
Kids love crystals. Getting a selection of crystals is a cheap and easy meditation tool for kids. They enjoy getting to pick which one they will use for their meditation. If you have younger children you may skip this one because they can be a choking hazard (depending on how small of crystals you purchase). See some of the crystals my favorite shop offers.

A known as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Tapping is a powerful healing technique, especially for anxious kids! EFT is a great addition to a kids meditation practice. Get the Tapping Solutions App for your child as a meditation tool
