  • Snowy Tree
  • Forest of Snowy Trees
  • Lemming (mouse)
  • Heart-Shaped Mudra (for the heart-shaped wishing stone)
  • Bell Mindful Walking

  • Arctic Fox (cat pose + sign for “fox”)
  • Badger (big steps pretending to walk on snowshoes)
  • Polar Bear (extended Child Pose)
  • Moose (Seated Twist + hands on head as big antlers)
  • Porcupine (Lotus Mudra – fingers look like the quills)
  • Wolf (Upward Facing Dog)
  • Broken Ice Chimes Mindful Listening (small wind chimes or chime bar)
  • Snowy Owl (Gyan Mudra at eyes)

Craft Idea: Make Wishing Stones by decorating small river rocks or glass stones with permanent markers, stickers or paint. Here’s one example: http://club.chicacircle.com/glass-painted-wishing-stones/ and another one using melted crayons: http://artfulparent.com/2014/05/diy-wishing-stones-friend.html. To promote the idea of “giving”, each child could make a wishing stone to give away as a gift. Free card to go with the gift: http://www.janbrett.com/pdf/animal_santa_christmas_card.pdf

2 New Snowy Faves: One-Dog Sleigh & Ladybug Girl and the Big Snow

 2 new snowy faves post

Here are two new fun additions to my winter-themed book collection for 2013…..

 

Ladybug Girl and the Big Snow

This new book in the Ladybug Girl series has a great message of “perseverance” and “looking on the bright side”.  The book has the following opportunities for kids yoga: reach-stretch to put on warm clothing (long johns, snow pants, boots, puffy jacket, mittens & earmuffs), up dog (for her companion Bingo),  sun breath & stretch, cross-crawl hike through the snow, penguin (mountain + waddle), tree with snow on “branches”, blowing snow (blowing cotton balls), bell mindful walking activity, standing forward fold to dig in snow, rock-and-roll snowballs, flying winter dragon (Warrior III), mountain, snow animals (bear, dear, bunny, rhino, gorilla, lion, hippo, unicorn), hot cocoa by the fire (palming), snowflakes (standing star with wiggling fingers). The book ends with the sky turning a deep blue with snowflakes….. would make for a nice transition into Savasana with one of these snowy guided relaxations: https://omazingkidsllc.com/2012/12/14/even-more-snowy-faves-two-guided-relaxation-stories-great-for-kids-yoga/

One-Dog Sleigh

This book reminds me of the book “The Mitten” with lots of animals squeezing into a sleigh. I love the rhyming cumulative verses and repeated lines. The book has the following opportunities for kids yoga: horse, sleigh, up dog, squirrel, sleigh bells, owl, lynx (cat), deer, bear, tree, blowing snow (blowing cotton balls), mouse, standing star with twinkling fingers, barn (rooftop partners).

Five Snowy Faves – kids picture book gems

snowy book faves

There are certain kids picture books that stand out as “gems”. Those “extra-special” books that make your heart smile every time you read them. The way the text flows & rhymes as you read it aloud. The detail and beauty of the illustrations that are a feast for the eyes. The special life lessons and values that they convey. A fun repeated line that provides an opportunity for kids to participate in telling the story. Even the size and type of font, the feel of the paper and the cover add to the “gem” qualities of a great kids picture book.

These five books are recent additions to my vast collection of picture books and are “gems”:

a-flower-in-the-snow

  • A Flower in the Snow by Tracey Corderoy, illustrated by Sophie Allsopp. Luna and her polar bear friend (Bear) discover a beautiful gold flower growing in the snow. But when the flower fades, Bear goes on a search around the world for another to bring to Luna. It’s only when he returns home that the true strength of their friendship is revealed.This book has wonderful illustrations, large easy-to-read text, lots of descriptive language, opportunities for imagination as you follow Bear’s search for the flower, and conveys the value of true friendship. An added bonus is that there are lots of opportunities for kids yoga poses.

making-a-friend

  • Making a Friend by Alison McGhee, illustrated by Marc Rosenthal. Short easy-to-read sentences on each page, great opportunities for vocabulary, sequencing, part-to-whole & pronouns, several wordless pages allow for creativity and storytelling, fun hidden details as you search for the snowman’s face in several of the pages, and the story conveys two great messages: “What you love will always be with you” and the cycle of connection in nature (snow, water, ocean, rain, fog, frost).

NoTwoAlike

  • No Two Alike by Keith Baker. A story that conveys the beauty of being unique. Vivid illustrations, bold short easy-to-read text on each page, text from one page rhymes with the next, and lots of animals and nature depicted will provide opportunities to use this in a kids yoga class.

overunder

  • Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner, illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal. The dimensions of the book, sturdy feel and texture of the paper and illustrations are all unique. Lots of opportunity for prepositions, verbs & other descriptive vocabulary. The accuracy of the details and info about the animals depicted in the book would lend itself well to use in a classroom discussion. See this pic for yoga opportunities in this book: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=472679099449767&set=pb.174264525957894.-2207520000.1355009141&type=3&theater. (Also shared in the “Winter & Christmas” blog post linked below)

robert frost

  • Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost, illustrated by Susan Jeffers. A beautiful rendition of the famous poem brought to life by the detailed illustrations. Lots of wonderful animals to look for on each page and opportunities for vocabulary and inferences. A splendid way to introduce young children to poetry.

(A beautiful short video rendition of the poem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEtMLqP7tpA)

12 Days of Christmas Kids Yoga

The 12 Days of Christmas blog post

I have always loved the song “The 12 Days of Christmas”, especially the version by John Denver & The Muppets (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MX43ynMvm0) ….. the part where Beaker sings “me-me-me-me-me” makes me smile 🙂

So I thought it would be fun to find yoga poses to go with it. In my search for ideas I came across this fun video by Malissa Schwamm, E-RYT; RCYT at Northwest Yoga StudioPeace.Love.Yoga. in Las Vegas, NV. I saw a few other video ideas online but this was one was my fave!

The Yoga of Dr. Seuss – inspired by “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” {free printable}

Dr. Seuss books & characters are a wonderful inspiration for kids yoga class activities. Here are a few ideas based on the book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”:

  • Mt. Crumpit mountain pose
  • Max the downward facing dog pose
  • Who choo-choo breath
  • Christmas tree pose (make ornaments from paper, felt or foam & hang from your arms (“branches”) in tree pose)
  • Who feast (group table pose)
  • Grinch Santy Claus Ho-Ho-Ho breath
  • Crumbs too small for a mouse pose
  • Group sled pose (seated angle in a line, lean to each side)
  • Heart grew three sizes mudra (pic: http://tinyurl.com/c7s7dtt)

This story would be best for kids who are a little older and can lead to great discussions about the over-commercialization of Christmas, what was truly important to the Whos, etc.

I added 3 yoga cards to my Seuss Yoga post:
