‘Sesame Street’ and Headspace Team Up to Encourage Kids to Practice Meditation
As a way to combat stress and anxiety during these challenging times, Sesame Street and Headspace, a global leader in mindfulness and meditation, announced they have teamed up to create “Monster Meditations,” six animated shorts to help children learn the fundamentals of mindfulness, meditation and social and emotional learning. The six shorts will launch on a biweekly cadence, beginning April 15 on YouTube and YouTube Kids.
The shorts, roughly three minutes in length, will feature animated versions of the beloved Sesame Street Muppets having feelings of frustration, impatience, being overwhelmed, nervousness, disappointment, and excitement.
