If you are a regular reader of this website, you know how I’m all about making movement fun and meaningful for kids. I LOVE a good theme and love to incorporate movement in themes. It’s just more fun. In addition to the themes I’ve started to create stories to go along with the ideas. They have been a HUGE hit! The winter yoga story is the first story I’m sharing on the website. I’m making a download of the winter yoga story available for you for FREE.
Winter Yoga Story
I created this story to include all of the different winter yoga poses or moves from my winter yoga for kids ideas. Don’t let the word yoga intimidate you. These moves are simple easy and fun. There is no need to be a yogi to enjoy the winter yoga and movement story.
I’ve found it easiest to have visuals (winter yoga and movement cards) to use when reading the winter yoga story, for myself, and for the kids doing it.
I like to place the cards in order to go along with the story. When a movement comes up, I can have the card ready.
In the story I have all of the poses and movements highlighted so you don’t miss them. I’ve also included a reference sheet so you know what each pose should look like.
Check out my own son (he is 5 years old and a preschooler in this video) doing the winter yoga story. You’ll notice that not every pose is perfect, and that’s okay!
I’m really loving the story format. It is seriously so much fun and so much engagement.
WINTER YOGA STORY, CARDS, AND BOOK
To make this story even better, I’ve created an option for you to get all of the visuals (cards and printables) to make this winter movement story even better with the Winter Yoga Pack Bundle. This pack includes yoga cards/printables, and the winter yoga story in book format. You will get three different formats of winter yoga cards. The cards will have real kids, clip art kids, and winter clip art objects. You’ll also get this story in a book form that you can print and put together – this is really a fun way to go through the story too. The price on this is significantly reduced when you buy the pack. It is also the only place you can get the book format of the story for free.
