Fairy Yoga (+ Printable Poster)

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.
