On this Journey to the Woods, children descend down an escalator to a flower garden, to a meadow and through the woods. They find a comfortable spot near a stream where they meet a special buddy (pet, doll, friend, grandparent, or spiritual guide) and revel in the love,understanding and acceptance which is showered upon them. Children are encouraged to talk to this special buddy about any problem or dilemma they are experiencing. Great for when one is feeling sad, lonely, confused, afraid or worried.
On this Journey to the Sea, children relax their bodies by being rag dolls and then take a journey over the mountains to the ocean via a bouquet of helium balloons. Once at the sea shore, they take in the sights, sounds and smells of the sea and are lulled into relaxation. They are once again joined by their special buddy (see Journey to Woods) who offers them unconditional love, acceptance, friendship, and understanding.
Recommended for children 6-12 who love the outdoors.
