Who doesn’t love fairies!
Watching my daughter enter the magical world of pretend play has been so cool. She loves dressing up as fairies and princesses. During a recent nature walk, we pretended to be walking through a fairy forest and going on fairy adventures. We also found fairy books in the library, and she loved doing fairy sticker books during our summer travels. We even planted a fairy garden this year.
Another way to celebrate fairies is through movement and story. First, take out your fairy, princess, or other pretend world gear (books, stickers, dress-up clothes, stamps, cards, figurines, etc.). Create a fairy world in your studio, classroom, or home to ignite their imagination.
You could follow the suggested fairy yoga sequence below or grab a yoga pose card pack and make up your own fairy-inspired yoga sequence. Don’t worry about practicing the yoga poses perfectly—just give it a go. Spark your children’s imagination by joining in their pretend fairy yoga experience and asking them questions: How do fairies move? Where do fairies live? What makes fairies special? What do fairies do for fun? See how your fairy yoga experience unfolds… no doubt in a magical way.

Yoga Books for Kids
Check out our yoga stories for young children:
“Sophia’s Jungle Adventure is a simple story that links together a series of yoga poses with a child’s imagination. Children act out the story using the poses as they pretend to be various animals seen in the rain forest. Seamlessly integrated into the story are reminders that we need to be mindful of our environment and the living things with which we share it. I use this story in my speech language therapy program to encourage shared imagination and to build vocabulary and concepts. I give this story a 5-star rating for the simple, yet colorful illustrations and the opportunity to encourage imagination.”
