Have fun with them, Feel free to make up names of poses and make things up, its all about having fun and encouraging your children’s creativity.

Yoga poses for kids often mimic our natural surroundings and may be interpreted in different ways. Some things to consider when you are practicing yoga with your children: Feel free to adapt or change the yoga poses to suit your needs.

10 BENEFITS OF DRESS-UP PLAY FOR CHILDREN

Children throughout the ages have enjoyed dressing up in costumes and engaging in dramatic roleplaying.

Turns out, trying to get our kids to listen with yelling, bribing or threats has more negative effects on a child’s behaviour, which is clearly counterproductive.
