Garden Yoga For Kids -Pose Ideas

Spring is in full swing.  The birds are chirping, plants are blooming, the air is warmer, and the days are longer.  At my house this means that gardening is beginning.  My thumb isn’t green, more yellow really, but I try.  This year I plan to plant lettuce, peppers, green beans, tomatoes, and flowers.  Gardening is also an excellent theme to incorporate into kids yoga.  Garden yoga for kids is great not only for the spring, but can be utilized year round.
