One of my favorite things to do is developing creative new yoga games out of classic favorites. Kids LOVE this as it gives them a game the are already familiar with combined with the opportunity to practice yoga poses, work together as a group, and have lots of fun.
My upcoming book, Go Go Yoga Kids: Empower Kids for Life Through Yoga includes over 50 fun and creative games to play while learning all about yoga and having fun!
Here is how to play Yoga Jenga! Before playing write the names of yoga poses on Jenga blocks in a permanent marker. Each child takes a turn carefully drawing out one block out at a time and placing it on top of the tower. The child will read aloud the pose and demonstrate it. Everyone then practices the yoga pose.
Continue around the circle with each child selecting a block. As per normal Jenga rules, when the blocks fall, the game is over. Kids LOVE this.
Yoga Jenga is such a fun way to learn and practice many many poses! Have fun!
