Activity Ideas for Home or Classroom

Body Benefits
Many of our YogaKids also call this pose the Super Boy or Super Girl pose. They like to sway from side to side like they’re flying. Try this version and test your strength and balance.

Laughing Language
What makes you a Super Kid? Write down your words or have your mom or a grown-up help you. Here are some examples:

I am a Super Boy cause I can run really fast.
— Conrad, Michigan City, IN

My grandma calls me super girl because I love yoga and can bend in all different ways.
— Amy, New Buffalo, Michigan

I have a super cat and she can jump on and off the roof.
— Ruth, LaPorte, IN

We All Win
Try this pose with a partner and help each other.

  1. Stand facing one another.
  2. Stretch your arms overhead.
  3. Bend forward at your hips and take hold of your friends hands, wrists or arms.
  4. Balance together. Help each other. Smile at each other.
  5. Switch legs.

Nutrition
Kids love to be fed with their airplane spoons when they were little. Their mouth was the hangar and the healthy sweets would come flying in. If your child needs some fun and incentive to eat healthy foods, play ‘Flying Foods.” Zigzag, loop-de-loop or circle her airplane spoon into her mouth filled with small, sweet, delicious fresh fruit pieces like strawberries, blueberries, bananas, mangos or papaya. Organic, naturally sweetened yogurts, whole grain cereals and raisins, currants or other dried fruits may also be appreciated.
