One player begins by choosing an action that starts with the same letter as their name (for example, jumping Jen).
The player says their name aloud and demonstrates their chosen action for the rest of the group, who will then say the player’s name and mimic their action.
The next player in the circle (the player on the first person’s left) says the player’s name and demonstrates their action and then says their own name aloud with their own action (for example, jumping Jen, dancing David) and the rest of the group repeats the second player’s name and mimics their actions.
Continue this process around the circle until everyone has had a turn saying his or her name and inventing an action.
Today we're celebrating the #SummerSolstice and #InternationalYogaDay
Yoga is an awesome way to help kids develop important physical and mental skills - and it can be easily adapted for all ages and abilities!
For younger children, keep practices short and use stories and familiar animals or objects as cues for them to mimic with their poses.
For older kids, try building to some more challenging balancing poses or turn inwards to focus on the stress-relieving benefits of the practice.
