Talk to your kids without saying a word! Through joyous play, this game helps children slowdown and gives them time to connect with you and feel heard! It’s great on a play date, too. Here's how to play Magic Mirror!

  • Switch off who is the "leader" and "follower”
  • Give yourself simple scenarios to act out
  • Turn on relaxing music to set the mindfulness mood

This is a great idea and so simple. I used to do this with my oldest when she was little and have forgotten about it. I need to bring it back for my youngest! Thanks Jocelyn Greene !
