12 Days of Christmas Calm is the perfect way to help children feel calm over Christmas. In this printable pack, we bring you 12 activities starting on Christmas Day, taking you right up until 6th January.

This year our 12 Days of Christmas Calm has a fun twist - we want your children to help calm Santa's beard! All that travelling around the world has caused Santa's beard to get tangled and he's feeling stressed - to help Santa, can your children complete our 12 fun mindful activities? After they complete an activity, they get a star to stick on his beard. They need to collect all stars to calm Santa so he is able to tame his mane and start planning for next year's festivities!

Every activity has been specially designed for each day - from our Box of Kindness on Boxing Day to our Countdown to Calm on New Year's Eve. Plus, we have resources to help your children see in and process a new year.
