Thanksgiving Yoga Cards and Printables

This set consists of the same 9 poses as the kids set.  The difference in this set is the presentation of pictures of objects instead of kids in the poses.  I’ve found that some of my kids relate better to seeing a picture of a turkey or pumpkin instead of a picture of a yoga pose!
