My friend shared these 3 posters with me the other day and they’ve been a huge success in our family. I’ll tell you why.
I like to start the day with some physical activity with my kids. Both for them and for myself. I find that it’s a nice way to get warmed up for all the activities and learning time that awaits us, and also because it feels nice and gives us positive vibes.
I have tried different things (with different levels of success), but the problem is basically always the same. I rely on a YouTube video for yoga, exercise, or dance practice, and the moment I try to turn off the TV… my almost 5 year old starts complaining and demanding more screen time. If I don’t turn on the TV, she doesn’t even remember that it’s there.
As you can imagine, these posters are perfect because they not only are screen-free but also fun- they come in three different flavors: ocean, superhero, and calm down- and because they’re challenging enough that will last for a while without us getting bored of the poses.
They can be downloaded for free from the Kids Yoga Stories website.
My kids are almost 5 and 2, and we all have lots of fun trying to do these even though we don’t know what we’re doing. The other day we finished our session trying to do the turtle pose and ended up becoming a train of turtles slowly dragging themselves around the living room.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
