It's Playtime: Body Fun

It's Playtime and Messy Kids isn't just about art and play.  We also want to promote healthy body awareness through play and activities.  Who says exercise, balance, and the body can't be fun?      
Learners in Bloom shared how to have Yoga Fun with Preschoolers with the help of some lovely yoga pose cards from Barefoot Books.  I used these cards when I taught preschool and they are great!  The kids loved the many animal names and balance activities.  

  Teach Joy in the Body with some simple activities from Enjoying the Journey.  

Don't have any Yoga pose cards?  Check out this kid friendly yoga video posted by Healthymamainfo.
