Good Night, Animal World Yoga Cards
A quiet Yoga Kids activity before bedtimeSay good night to the animals of the world at bedtime with these yoga cards to match Good Night, Animal World. Match and sort thirteen calming yoga poses for kids with their respective animals. Age group: Toddler, preschooler. Ages 2-5.
We absolutely love the cards! We can pace them better for our son's attention span and he loves seeing the animals too. I give them a 4 out of 5. Only because I wished there were more poses in the deck.
I did another Memory game with an 11 year old yesterday--after studying the 12 cards for a minute, we put all of the animal cards face down (from the Goodnight Animal book) and then took turns holding the pose names while the other chose a card--we then had to try to remember where the animal matching pair was, if we got a pair we did the pose.
We love doing our yoga poses at so many times during the day to “reset” the girls. However, I wasn’t keen on starting up a long yoga routine just before bed. Maybe just a few poses would be good. Therefore, using these yoga cards is great because we can choose how many poses we are going to do. I bought this yoga bedtime pack (book + cards) by Kids Yoga Stories. I am not affiliated with them just LOVE Giselle’s blog, routines and books. Her hubby is from Australia and hence why you see her Aussie themed books too and her in-laws stock some of her products here in Sydney. You will see me use these cards in my toddler Play with Food classes during either our “prepare to eat” routine OR as an activity at the end of class once we have had our “clean-up” time routine. They are PERFECT for ensuring a smooth transition in and out of the meal. Simone Play with Food
I received the cards today, my son loves it. My son was born with hard of hearing and was diagnosed with Autism. I heard they did animal yoga in nursery and he loves animals so I searched on the internet and found your cards most suitable since he is a visual learner with great imaginative skills, this is a really fun activity we can do together.
5 Things I Love About Them: 1. The 3x5 Notecard size is small enough and light enough to keep in my yoga bag as an emergency “Oh No I Have Nothing Planned” Activity. 2. The Index Card has a list of the poses in order from standing to relaxation as well as a color coded key showing the animal/yoga pose pair. 3. Calming poses are sequenced well from active to relaxing yoga poses. They are all good poses to settle before bedtime or before relaxation time. 4. The cards can be used individually, in a series, or as an animal matching game. 5. They come in a sweet, mesh bag that keeps them together, but visible. As a yoga teacher, I think you will LOVE these cards as an addition to your classes. As a parent, I think you will LOVE how fun these will make bedtime. Carolyn Clarke Bambino Yoga
