Spring has arrived in San Francisco! What better time for Spring Yoga.
This month, I’m teaming up with other Multicultural Kids Bloggers to share what Spring is like in our part of the world. Here are some things that we like to do to celebrate the start of Spring:
Spring in San Francisco
We can never get enough of the Golden Gate Park. So much to do and see. Springtime is an especially magical time to visit the park with the flowers in bloom. Here is a picture of some cherry blossoms during our weekend walk.
We love going to the San Francisco Zoo. Check out this article on 10 Ways to Enrich your Family Trip to the Zoo on the Kid Friendly SF website. Here are some daffodils that we saw in bloom. Another sweet surprise was this darling hummingbird.
Thanks to a posting on the Best Hikes for Children in the Bay Area Facebook page, we found out about the Wildflower Walk at Edgewood County Park. Check out Laure’s amazing book, Best Hikes with Kids: San Francisco Bay Area and her family adventure blog, Frog Mom. Here are some buttercups from our Wildflower Walk yesterday.
Lastly, we love working in our garden. Our daughter and I have been out there digging and weeding to get ready for this year’s veggie plant. In previous years, we have grown corn, potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce, pumpkin, peas, rocket, and zucchini. This year we will plant a mini-garden for our daughter to enjoy.
If you are looking for ways to bring Spring into your home, classroom, or studio, here is a 3-Part Spring Yoga Pack:
- A Spring Kids Yoga Sequence to get the children swaying like a tree, blossoming like a flower, and buzzing like a bee.
- A matching Springtime Yoga Journey Handout to print out and have your child illustrate the keyword and kids yoga pose.
- A special Rachel’s Spring Day Colors Mini-Book that you can print out, read, act out, and illustrate together.
We just found this darling book in the library, Butterfly Butterfly by Petr Horacek, which would be a perfect compliment to Rachel’s Spring Day. The pop-up butterfly is spectacular.
How do you celebrate Spring with your family? You up for some Spring yoga?
