Shhhhh…..don’t wake up the Princess in this new favorite game
Are you needing a game that young kids love to play AND it keeps them quiet?
Back before the pandemic, Princess Tiptoe was a game that I regularly rotated in for my younger kids yoga classes (ages 3-6).
We would play this game right before our Stillness and Savasana and it was the perfect game for winding down and bringing a calming sense and energy to the group.
Princess Tiptoe is found in our brand new book, Yoga Games & Activities for Children.
How to Play Princess Tiptoe
Number of Players: 6+
Materials: Magic Wand or something similar deemed magic
Recommended Ages: 3-6
- Select one player as “Prince Tiptoe” (or Princess Tiptoe).
- The other players spread over the room and go into Child’s Pose (see image below). If you are able, turn the lights turned low as tat creates a calming feeling.
The Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards include 40 Yoga Poses, Starred Difficulty Level, and corresponding Mantra
- Princess Tiptoe begins by putting a finger to their lips and whispering: “shh! Here comes Prince Tiptoe” as they tiptoe around the room.
- When the players are tapped by Prince Tiptoe they join in a line behind the Prince, tiptoeing at the same speed.
- When all of the players are in line, Prince Tiptoe slows the movement and turns to the player directly behind them and says, “shh.”
- The Player behind should quickly tiptoe back to their original spot and go back into Child’s Pose.
- This continues until all of the players have returned to their spots.
This is great for transitioning from a noisy, loud active group game to a quieter time for younger children. I love to use this game as a simple and effective transition into Stillness and Savasana at the end of our yoga class.
