Yoga Birthday Bash (9 photos)
I have a little yogi in my family. My now 7 year old, absolutely loves going to yoga class and I love the physical benefits and the calm focus it brings her. She was especially excited to share it with her friends at her yoga birthday party.
I designed a set of yoga flashcards for the invitation and a poster that welcomed guests.
The party started off with a yogurt bar. The kids scooped yogurt and chose granola, blueberries, strawberries, honey straws, and sprinkle toppings to make their own yogurt parfaits.
After everyone had their snack, it was time to bend, stretch, and twist! The yoga instructor lead them through the yoga poses by telling stories and having the kids act out animal characters. The kids had so much fun making fish faces, pouncing like cats, sitting like flowers, rocking their foot "babies" to sleep and the parents had just as much fun watching.
We took a little break part way through class for a craft. They decorated talking sticks with pipe cleaners, feathers, and beads; one of their own and they each contributed something to one they made collectively. All the children sat in a circle and the birthday girl in the center. They passed the talking stick around the circle and each took a turn saying something they liked about the birthday girl.
The class wrapped up with meditation time and relaxation.
All the happy yogis went home with their yoga mat, tied up with a ribbon carrying strap (tutorial to come!), and personalized water bottle.
