I have been inspired again to do our mindfulness and bring yoga into it.  We will do this each morning after free play.

We will use a small bit of material the children will sit on and in the middle we will have a flameless candle.  My aim will be that we first do our breathing then do a yoga move and then using another small candle the children will tell us what they are wanting to do today in our play times.  We will then be able to better help them achieve their goals.

We will then have our outing and when we come back we will have our structured play.

Another idea I have seen someone else do and loved was at the end of the week the children choose photos from their tapestry and we print them so they can take them home to tell family about their week.

At the end of the day we will have our story as we try to do at the moment but we will use our small bits of material to sit on and have our teddy with us.  So the children can use the teddy to do breathing exercises or lay down with if they want.
