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

I plan to use this activity with the Primary song Teach Me to Walk in the Light. However, you can use these fun yoga cards with or without music and with any song you’d like!

How to Play:

Print out the Winter Olympics Yoga cards, either the ¼ page or full page option. Cut them out into individual cards. The printable file is at the bottom of this post!

Sing through Teach Me to Walk in the Light, or whatever Primary song you choose to work on during this activity. You can grab our Teach Me to Walk in the Light Flip Chart here, if helpful!

Post all the Winter Olympic Yoga cards up on the whiteboard, face down. Let the children pick one of the actions, and help you demonstrate what it looks like. Sing through the song doing this single action for the whole verse.

Have another child come and pick another action and demonstrate it. Have the children mirror you and practice the stance. Now, sing through the song and switch poses every other line. “Teach me to walk in the light of his love…” is the first yoga pose. “Teach me to pray to my father above…” for your second pose. Continue to alternate through the song.

Add additional actions and rotate through them during the song until you have 4 actions. Then, replace the first action with a new action!

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!
  • Have the children vote on their favorite winter Olympic sport to watch. Do that stance then vote again!
  • 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.
