Christmas Classic Plus Yoga Fun - All in One!

Fun for anyone that has or works with kids in any capacity!

12 days of christmas game

 

Inclusive Family Fun

This activity is challenging enough to keep big kids interested, and sweet and fun enough for young children. The 12 Days of Yoga Christmas Carol is inclusive activity for all ages and abilities.

Hint: If someone can't do poses, they can sing. If they can't sing, they can try to do poses or cheer others on. Someone  can show the yoga cards. Someone can help with the lyrics! Everyone can participate in their own way. This activity is designed for many types of learners and participation. All forms of participation are valuable!

 

How to play the 12 Days of Christmas Yoga Game - pointers

      1. Sing the 12-Days of Christmas song at the slow pace to allow for the transition from one pose to another.
      2. Practice each pose individually before you put them all together.
      3. Drink water after you play.
      4. Praise the effort not the perfection of the poses or order of poses. All kids have different strengths.

Sing and Play!

Everyone can sing along to the word of this classic song. Even in my non-Christian household, we love this activity, song, and sequence.
