My daughter loves farm animals. And she loves yoga. So naturally, we did a few farm animals yoga poses before our recent trip to a local farm. At the farm, we saw a cow, a sheep, a goat, chickens, pigs, bunnies, a cat, and a dog. She loves acting out the farm animals and imitating their sounds. Practicing yoga is a fun, family-friendly, indoor activity that is especially beneficial during the winter months.

Farm Animals and Kids Yoga
You can also practice farm animal yoga poses with books. A fabulous book about farm animals is A Farmer’s Life for Me by Jan Dobbins and Laura Huliska-Beith. And it’s also available in Spanish! As you read the book together, try using kids yoga poses to act out the farm animals in the book.
Feel free to use your imagination and make up your own poses, as well.

Other Books on Farm Animals
Old MacDonald had a Farm, illustrated by Mandy Foot
We especially love the Australian version of this popular song. Along with the usual farm animals common in North America, you’ll also find an emu, a kangaroo, a cockatoo, and a kookaburra. You could act out any version of the Old MacDonald book, too.
A Year at a Farm, by Nicholas Harris
I bought this book recently for our long plane ride. Each of the eight pages shows small illustrations of year-round farm activities. Our daughter loves the intricate pictures. My favorite one is an image of a man lying on a mat while fixing his motorcycle. My daughter thinks he is practicing yoga! Find other titles in the Time Goes By series, like a day at the zoo, airport, city, or a year in a construction site, castle, and pirate ship.
