For my Smile Challenge, I wanted to do something that would bring a whole group of people together. After some thought, I decided to accompany my mom in her weekly virtual yoga class with our elementary school’s Girl Scout troop. I created a list of activities and ran them by my mom. I ended up with two: a yoga fortune teller, and an animal pose. Midway during the lesson, I came onto the Zoom call and taught the Girl Scouts how to make a paper fortune teller. Then, once they were done, we brainstormed yoga poses they could right on the inside. The girls now have a cool craft that can allow them to practice their yoga skills. Then for homework, my mom and I assigned them the task of creating their own yoga pose that imitates their favorite animal. These activities put a smile on the girls’ faces and made the yoga class fun and exciting.
