Colorful Place:

Mindful Story and Art for Kids


Children will delight in this mindful journey... 


BREATHE: venture into the imagination with a story that gently teaches soothing skills like breathing, counting, and noticing the five senses.

ART: after the story, art activities extend and deepen the experience.


CALM: mindful story and art, together, help children make deeper connections with themselves and the present moment to feel more calm, relaxed and confident.

Jocelyn Fitzgerald & Heather McClelland

Jocelyn Fitzgerald, art therapist, and Heather McClelland, public school teacher, are basketball moms who met when their boys were young. Before and after games they would talk about mindfulness and helping kids which led to the idea for this book. The tragic pandemic of 2020 motivated them to make this book a reality.
