Storytime Yoga: The Princess and the Wizard

September 21, 2016

 

What a phenomenal event this was! There was dancing. There was an interactive story time. There was a rigorous retelling that was fun and engaging! I'm so grateful to my dear friend Becky for offering this entertaining experience! We are absolutely doing this again in October!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had quite a few boys & girls and they were totally loving the activity and silliness. Becky started them out with two warm up songs that were so fun and got us ready to listen!

 

 This month Becky read The Princess and the Wizard by Julia Donaldson (author of The Gruffalo, which is great also). It was descriptive and delightful. Everyone loved using their 'wizard laugh', finding the shapeshifting princess on each page, and guessing what was going to happen next.

 

 

Next came the fun part... retelling/acting out the story! This was my favorite because it was challenging but every child made the effort to do each move and had so much fun because of it!  I was so proud of them!

 

In conclusion, this was a great experience for us here at Wiggles n Giggles.  I want to say a huge thank you again to Becky.  It was active, engaging, and a great way to spend time with friends.  I hope many of you are able to join us next time.  It will blow you away.
