Peace Makers (Tool-Kit)


PeaceMakers help children and adults connect in daily, playful ways around the things that matter most: our ideas and our feelings. Each card delivers a unique, affirming message designed to nurture emotional intelligence including self-love, social skills, a growth mindset, confidence, and more. These messages are brought to life by centering conversations, activities, and stories around the themes.


Inside each box you will find:

  • Three welcome cards: these cards will introduce you to the deck and help you get started using them in diverse settings with children ages 3 and up.
  • Seven adult cards: this mini deck, ideal for teens, parents, educators and more, will further introduce you to the deck’s seven themes. Adults working with PeaceMakers find this mini deck helps them lead and guide by example, especially in times of stress.
  • 35 cards for all ages: simple, affirming messages exploring seven themes, represented by seven peace-making pals: Bear (Power), Fox (Joy), Lion (Balance), Hummingbird (Love), Dolphin (Peace), Owl (Intuition), and Elephant (Forgiveness).

Mindfulness is paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, with joy and ease.

The practice of mindfulness has been proven to positively affect both our mental health and our physical well-being. The long list of benefits include stress reduction, improved attention, an increased ability to regulate emotions, and an increase in one’s ability to feel compassion and empathy.

Many psychotherapists consider mindfulness to be an effective treatment for adults, children, and adolescents who struggle with aggression, ADHD, and anxiety.

As children practice mindfulness, they become aware of what their minds are really up to. This helps children deal with their emotions and to replace impulsive reactions with more thoughtful responses.

Without basic mindfulness skills including self awareness and impulse control, children and adults tend to be reactive, but, by making the practice of pausing and connection to the present moment a daily playful ritual, PeaceMakers and other mindfulness practices help people of all ages respond instead of react.

A research study at the University of California found that children who practice meditation have improved focus, higher grades, stronger emotional regulation abilities, more compassion, and better conflict-resolution skills.
