This is a perfect opportunity if parents want to explore the idea of meditation with their kids but don't want to commit with cash since the content in this free version is limited. The calm, soothing voice in the guided meditations helps kids develop relaxation techniques, build self-awareness, and the ability to reflect; while the nature sounds evoke serenity and peace in this capped demo. Meditation for Children Free Meditation for kids introduces families to the content and quality of the app. Although the guided meditations available on the free version are on the shorter end compared to the others, they address key mindfulness techniques that can be applied to everyday situations. The nature sounds included are ideal for relaxation and bedtime, taking listeners on a journey to a beach where they hear waves crashing or birds chirping. The graphics and layout are a bit outdated and dull, but the content itself is worthwhile. It’s an easy to use tool that families can use to launch learning and conversation around mindfulness and/or to evoke relaxation and calm. The material in the free version is limited, but it's a good starting point for families wanting to explore mindfulness, without having to commit to a purchase.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
