I love combining moving with learning and one fun way to do that is by doing shapes yoga for kids. The yoga poses are your traditional yoga poses with a twist to make them easy for kids to relate to shapes. It’s a fun way for kids to kinesthetically work on learning!
Shapes Yoga For Kids
Each yoga pose represents a shape. Modify the poses as needed. Let the kids enjoy the yoga and be creative with their poses. If you really love this idea be sure to stop by the shop to get your ready made set of cards and printables for your own use! Check out more tips on yoga for preschoolers. or yoga poses for toddlers.

More Shapes Games
Along with shapes yoga for kids it’s fun to add more movement games and opportunities for learning and moving. After doing your shapes yoga, try the Shapes Scavenger Hunt. Read all about the scavenger hunt here.
We also liked to play the shapes game. Movement can easily be added to this game as well by having the kids move around the room to get their different shapes pieces.
We also love moving and learning about shapes with all the different games included in the Shapes Themed Movement Pack.
