Animal figurines

Went to one of my favorite stores in Ponca City, Oklahoma.  Brace Books and More.  Plus I used to work there on the weekends, when I worked at Conoco as a computer scientist.

Bought these little baby animal figurines.  I "figure" (ha) that I can use these minature animals shapes to do animal yoga with the kiddos at Mothers Day Out program at the church. 

Just another way to do yoga.  We did yoga with the felt animal shapes, that were A to Z earlier in the summer and that went well.

When the kids see me, they ask, "Are we going to do yoga story time?"  Yeah, this upcoming Thursday!

Brown Bear, Brown Bear....Let's do Yoga!

Let's do YogaKiddos on Thursday at Mother's Day Out with the 4 & 5 year olds with the "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do you See? " book!  It will be fun to go through the book and do the yoga poses of the animals!

I didn't know that there were other elements to the book, until I was looking for a graphic today.

We'll be doing of course, Brown Bear, Red Bird, Yellow Good, Blue Horse, Green Frog, Purple Cat, White Dog, Black Sheep, Gold Goldfish, a Teacher and Children in the class!  It is lots of fun.  See you Thursday!

When we went to the Zoo - by Jan Ormerod

I taught Yoga Kiddos today at Grace's Mothers Day Program at Wesley UMC.  I used the book,
When we went to the Zoo by Jan Ormerod.

Next time I teach, I'll need to start at a later time, and only go for 20-30 minutes.  Lots of wiggly bathroom going kiddos.  But I think the kiddos enjoyed it!  I'll be looking for donations of yoga mats, as I need more for 20 or so kids.
