Free Kids Yoga Activities for Halloween

Young Yoga Masters is celebrating this October with free treats!  It’s our Blog-iversary and with Halloween around the corner, we want to thank you for staying connected with these Halloween goodies for you and the children celebrating with you. Let’s make this Halloween a little more fun and healthy.

We’ve got three delights for our blog party:

  1. Free Printables – Healthy Treats you can shell-out
  2. A Fear Filled Story for Introducing your Kids Yoga Lesson Plan
  3. A Halloween Song that will get children stretching and breathing.

A Healthy Halloween Treat You Can Shell-Out

At my house, we get about 100 kids on Halloween that I’m going to experiment with this year.

Get your free printable coloring pages.

I’m giving out edible treats (I don’t want my house egged)  AND I’m slipping in a Yoga Coloring page to each costumed visitor.

My hope is that amidst all the candy and chips, they may strike a yoga pose when they see the colouring pages.

Here’s the link so you can also print these yoga coloring pages – as many as you want.  The two pictures you see in this blog post are yours by clicking below. You’re invited to share this link with anyone who also wants a healthy treat to give kids.

A Halloween Story for Yoga with Kids

free yoga activty page

Get these healthy Halloween coloring pages at the link above.

Try this scary story in your lesson plan to add some real yoga philosophy, that teaches us how you can train your mind to examine what is an illusion and what is real:

Once upon a time a man traveled home at night by the light of the moon.  He walked nimbly almost holding his breath because everyone said a deadly cobra lived beside the road.  Just as he approached the final bend he felt something brush against the front of his ankle.  Panicking he ran the last block screaming and shaking his leg.

Throwing himself beneath the light of his front porch he expected to see a snake wrapped around his ankle.  What he in fact saw was a child’s skipping rope.

This old yoga story shows us how we don’t see clearly when fear takes over.  Remember it when you trick or treat and come upon a scary house with spiders and witches. If you relax and breath you shed some light on the situation.

When you drop the fear you’ll see those spiders aren’t moving because they’re made of plastic.

And the person wearing that big black hat looks a lot like your friends mom and she’s holding a bowl of candy.

Today who wants to do some yoga to dispel fear so we can get lots of candy on Halloween?


A Halloween Song with Yoga Movements

Then you can launch into a warm up with this song:

Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
(Chair pose)

The first one said, “Oh my its getting late.”
(stay in chair pose and point to your watch)

The second one said, “There are witches in the air.”
(come upright and stretch arms in the air)

The third one said, “Oh we don’t care.”
(swoop arms down near the floor bending your knees)

The fourth one said, “Let’s run and run and run.”
(run on the spot)

The fifth one said, “I’m ready for some fun!”
(squat down slowly then jump up on “fun”)

OOOOOOOOOHHH went the wind
(stand with hands on waist and bend forward from left to right blowing like wind)

and OUT went the lights
(stretch arms to sides then clap hands on “out”)

and the five little pumpkins rolled out of site.
(rolly polly hands)

When the kids exclaim AGAIN, AGAIN you will be warmed up after one or two reps of this Halloween favorite.

Happy Halloween to everyone and thanks again for reading.  If you decide to give out the yoga coloring pages or have any ideas to share for a healthier Halloween leave a comment.
