A Simple Game to Build Focus

Chime Pass for increased focus and mindful awareness.

In today’s world, children think too much, do too much, and are distracted by all the multi-tasking and electronic devises that have become common practice. For a child to practice mindfulness, they must slow down, just be, and focus on one thing at a time. The Chime Pass game is a simple way for kids to be mindful and have fun at the same time.

What is Chime Pass?

Chime pass is a mindful listening practice. This activity works best with a group of children. A chime is rung and then passed from child to child without stopping the sound. The goal is to get the chime back to the starting person before the sound stops.

What are the Benefits?

Chime Pass builds focus, concentration, and mindful awareness. Chime Pass enhances teamwork, cooperation, and social connectedness.

What to Say.

Sit up tall in Easy Seated Pose. I’m going to ring this chime and then pass it you. Be careful to not stop the sound. You will then pass it to the next person without stopping the sound. The object of the game is to pass the chime to the starting person without stopping the sound. Ready? Let’s pass!
