As I shared with our first set of printable Body Shape Cards (click the link to download), making body shapes has always been a popular activity with the children I have taught and my own kids.
The activity is simple to do. Use your body to make a series of shapes. It’s great for developing spatial and body awareness, body control, coordination and balance. And it requires a good dose of concentration and problem solving too.
Today I am sharing a new set of printable body shape cards that take inspiration from yoga poses commonly used in yoga for kids. This also makes them a handy resource for teaching mindfulness to your children, and they are also a great tool for classroom brain breaks for kids aged seven and up.
