Yoga’s all the rage, even with the youngest among us. Bring the yoga experience to the next level for the kiddos with this great flashcard series from Learn With Yoga. Each letter of the alphabet is represented, and colorful illustrations demonstrate what each move looks like. For parents/teachers, follow the verbal cues to explain how to achieve the perfect pose, and then follow up with some educational tidbits that are relevant to the letter. For example, “A” stands for “Archer” position. Read the directions on how to achieve the pose, and continue the conversation with discussions about how “A” also stands for “aim” and “ambition.” Expand into rhyming and syllable segmentation, and you have an experience that’s both fun and educational. My kids LOVE these cards, often asking to do more, more, more even when this mama’s too pooped to down dog one more time. ABC Yoga Cards, which are approved for ages 2 and older, are $19.99 at learnwithyoga.com.
