Faith Summer Olympics + Sports Yoga Cards

The Olympics are always a really special and fun event to look forward to! So, I made this fun set of Faith Summer Olympics + Sports yoga cards! They are versatile to be used for a variety of fun activities with kids, including teaching music!

Even though these were designed to coordinate with the Olympics theme, they can ultimately be used any summer time to highlight their favorites sports and activities! You’ll also want to grab our Winter Olympics Sports Yoga Cards!

This yoga activity is one of our Purposeful Movement learning activities! We’ve share a whole post on 12 unique ways to use movement to teach kids, so head over to visit that post as well!

This spin off yoga activity is a fun way to bring in the current world events of the Summer Olympic Games into your Primary in a meaningful way!

I’ve planned this lesson to work with the Primary Song Faith, but it can be used with or without music and with any song!

How to Play:

Print out the Faith Summer Olympics (and summer sports) Yoga cards, either the ¼ page or full-page option. Cut them out into individual cards.

Sing through the Primary song Faith, or whatever Primary song you choose to work on during this activity.

Ask the children what their very favorite summer Olympics sports are to watch or play themselves. You might post a list of sports to choose from, to help them remember some of their favorites. Pick one of the actions named and ask the children if they think they can do that. For example, shall we try swimming like an Olympic athlete?

Have a volunteer child who named that activity as one of their favorites come to demonstrate how to do the action and reveal the yoga card! Have the children mirror you and practice the stance.

Do the action while you sing through the song.

Ask for another favorite summer Olympics sports and add it to the options. Let the kids pick which of the two sports they like best, and model that action throughout the song! Continue revealing and demonstrating new actions and adding them to the choices.

Extension Activities:

  • Let the kids pick and rearrange an order for the 4 yoga stances to rotate through during the song.
  • Do one yoga pose on the 1st and 3rd line, then let the 2nd and 4th lines be freestyle! Pick any position they’d like or come up with their own!
  • Post all of the Faith Summer Olympic cards up on the board face down. Have the children pick a card, and reveal it. Then do that action throughout the song. Pick another action, and then add it to the rotation now doing 2 different poses, switching at the end of each line.
  • Have a helper hold the cards and secretly hold four yoga pose cards. Have them hold up their 1st choice, then switch between the actions at the end of each line.
