Turkey’s and Twine – Thanksgiving Yoga Fun!
Kids will gobble up this fun turkey breathing game! Begin with a craft class to make your flock (no stuffing required!) and end with a fun game that teaches breathing skills. These fun and fabulous little turkeys are sure to get a presidential pardon and remain a favorite year after year.
You Will Need:
A Minimum of Three Players
Make Your Turkey:
Glue two feathers to each button to make wings.
Allow glue to set before playing (a good time to practice some Gratitude Yoga – be sure to check out next week’s post “Thanksgiving Yoga Class Plan” for ideas)
Turkeys ‘n’ Twine
1. Players One and Two hold Tree Pose.
2. Place “Turkey” on length of twine by threading twine through one of the button holes.
3. Each “tree” holds one end of the twine.
4. Player Three becomes the wind and blows the “turkey” from one tree to the other. Switch until each player has played the wind and each tree has caught a turkey.
Our September YoYo’s (taking their Yoga Instructor Training) catching turkey’s! (Bald Turkey’s — well, it was the end of summer, I am sure even Turkeys ‘shed’ their feathers during a Saint Louis summer!).
