Here is a quick and fun dreidel game you can play with kiddos ages 2-8!
Take turns spinning the dreidel and see what comes up.. See below for poses.
When someone rolls a Gimmel- do Gorilla Pose ( standing forward fold, arms droop and sway).
When someone rolls a Hay- do modified Headstand (knees down, head down).
When someone rolls a SHIN- do a Shoulderstand ( back down, legs up). When someone rolls a Nun, do “night” pose ( savasana, REST).
A few years ago, I did the Mindful Schools Training in Washington, DC.
I love what this organization does and want to help share great resources with folks around the country looking to integrate more of these practices into their daily lives.
Here are some movies to share with your PTA, Schools and to educate yourselves! Thanks to Mindful Schools for making these live and free for all to enjoy. Keep up the great work!
