The Yoga Garden Game for Kids
The Yoga Garden Game was created by Jennifer Durand as a fun game to help children play and learn yoga poses using interactive cards of animals and objects found in nature.
The object of TheYoga Garden Game is to plant a flower garden before night falls. Players move the bumblebee marker around the board, learning classic yoga poses.
First of all, I love the whole concept of this game and couldn’t wait to play this with my four-year-old. I’m a little ashamed to admit, that my four-year-old plays on her tablet way too much lately.
Although she is only allowed to play educational games, I am constantly trying to come up with fun, interactive activities that will keep her attention, and limit her iPad time. Who am I kidding, I could also stand to be a little more active myself!
- Yoga Garden Game board
- 1- bee-shaped marker
- 8 pie-shaped night pieces
- 8 circular flower pieces
- 24 Yoga Kids Pose Cards
- 1 die
- 1 rule book
Before starting the game, you place the night pieces on the night time tree, the flower pieces on the apple tree, and the Yoga Garden pose card on the sun (discards will go on the moon) Then simply follow the directions below.
They also suggest that before the game begins you decide on how long to hold each pose. Such as for younger children 5 seconds and older children a few more seconds for little more for a challenge. Also, as always you should never force yourself into a position that is painful.
Shake Like Jelly was Addy’s favorite card 🙂
I love that this game is so interactive and something we can both enjoy together, not to mention the many benefits of Yoga such as increasing flexibility, balance, and more!
