We love kids yoga here at Calm Ahoy Kids, especially yoga games! However my son is 4 and struggles to pay attention to longer sessions and screens, so we love to play random yoga games through out the day. This is one of his favourites, Dancing Trees. Dancing Trees is a fun yoga game that can help kids improve their balance, concentration and strength by practicing tree pose.
We also love our furry friend Meddy Teddy, he is such a great prop for teaching children yoga poses as his little legs and arms all move. He’s also so super soft and great for a cuddle and chill out time too. My husband particularly likes him because he stays still for pictures! Check Meddy Teddy out here.
- To begin you can put on some music or not and dance around the place like trees in a storm.
- When you shout storm passed, everyone stands tall with their feet hip width apart, stretching their arms out to either side, like branches and slowly growing into a tree.
- Then place the sole of one foot on the inside of the other leg, either below or above the knee. Find your balance, focus on on spot or object as this makes it easier to balance
- Now its time to take turn trying to blow the trees down and see how strong they can be. Repeat as many times as you wish and have fun.
