Rainbow Breathing Wand and Breath Practice

When we notice our breath, we can begin to slow our heart rate and anchor ourselves in the present moment. Using a Rainbow Breathing Wand is a wonderfully visual way to help us notice and regulate our breathing. Here are instructions for making your own Rainbow Breathing Wand plus a guided practice with Mindful Littles Founder Tanuka Gordon.


  • 1 pipe cleaner for each wand
  • 5 colorful beads for each wand


  • Shape one end of the pipe cleaner into a heart
  • Thread the beads on to the pipe cleaner
  • Shape the other end into another heart
