Playing with the Present HUB


Welcome to the central resource of materials for delivering the Playing with the Present curriculum.  The modular curriculum for teaching mindfulness through creativity to ages 8 – 18.

Please read the guidance on how to use the materials before downloading and using them.

They are constantly being reviewed and updated in response to teacher and student feedback so check back regularly to see that you are using the most up to date versions.

We are also continually adding resources and activities to augment the main modules.

Playing with the Present was developed with a Creative Learning ‘Creative Collaborations’ grant from the Arts Council of Wales in collaboration with Ebbw Fawr Learning Community.  It was piloted with the Awen Project and Mindfulness in Schools Wales. We are grateful for the support and enthusiasm of all students, teachers and funders who have helped along the way and those who continue to offer their gentle, kind and patient care to the pillars on which our mental health rest.
