We all know the feeling of being overwhelmed by a jumble of non-stop thoughts or strong emotions. The pond metaphor shows children how to observe and accept their thoughts and feelings without allowing themselves to get all caught up in them---a key component of mindfulness.

I came across this metaphor on the website


  • one-page printable story students may read on their own
  • version of the same story that an adult may read aloud to a class or group as a guided mindfulness exercise
  • "What's in Your Pond?" coloring page
  • "Be the pond" poster to hang as a visual reminder
