15 CALMING YOGA BOOKS FOR KIDS

 kids yoga books

Do your kids ever get overwhelmed? Mine sure do! Since us adults still struggle to pull out the right tools each time we feel frustrated, angry, annoyed, etc, imagine how kids feel! This list of amazing kids books centred around yoga is a great beginning to help your little ones understand and start talking about ways to help them feel calm and thoughtful through yoga!

Our local kids yoga studio, Yoga Buttons, right here in Vancouver has been such a positive influence on our children and they often remind each other (and me!) to take a deep breath and try to be calm. It's been so helpful for us and I hope you can find a book here to share with your little one too. Hand picked by the studio owner (thanks Carolyn!), these recommendations come straight from our favourite kids yoga teacher who deals with dozens of kids every day!

BLUSH, SILVER + WHITE 7th BIRTHDAY PARTY

Party Table blog.jpg

I can't believe our twin girls are 7!!! Over the past few years, I've shared Kaia and Noelle's birthday parties with all of you. Their 5th birthday with fairy crowns and a nature walk, their 6th birthday at a local art studio and this year, for their 7th birthday, they wanted something at home. So...with just a few friends and some pretty decorations (as well as an incredible magician!), we had a party that not only celebrated another year of having our joyful children in the world but also ticked the box as "the best birthday party we've ever had Mama!".

I've learned over the years to keep the decorations to one spot that is well lit. We opted to use our everyday console table and throw a white tablecloth on it. Using three cake stands (that we use for so many occassions), we filled the brown paper bags with popcorn and the cake took its' prized position in the centre. We added a few flowers in jars (I love eucalyptus and baby's breath) and picked up a few blush coloured roses to match the balloons.

While the girls waited at the window for their friends to arrive, I filled simple paper bags with party favours.

Once the kids arrived, we had a magician come to the house for a magic show, which was great fun and lots of laughs. The kids were even taught a trick of their own at the end. After all, parties are all about the fun, which this day was full of.

OH MONDAY!

1. Birthday parties (all three kids), Easter and a full schedule has meant that I haven't been here as often as usual. Well...hello, I'm back! If you're new around here, on Mondays I share 5 random things...inspirations, shopping finds, things we have seen or done over the weekend and anything else that I think you might like. The column is called Oh Monday because that's how I feel every Monday when I wake up. Ha.

2. Our sweet twins, Kaia and Noelle, celebrated their 7th birthday with a party this weekend and they had the BEST time. We hired a magician, which proved to be perfect for this age.

3. We made the drive to Fort Langley and area for a day trip to take the kids to see some countryside. It didn't disappoint!!!
