Strike a (Yoga) Pose 
The benefits of doing yoga go beyond becoming flexible and staying fit. It teaches mindfulness and proper breathing as well as relieving stress and improving focus. Yoga also helps children become still and aware of their emotions. Plus, they’re fearless (and flexible) enough to try all sorts of poses.

Learn How to Write Well 
Geared towards school-age children, the Young Writer’s Blueprint is an online course that help kids tap their imagination and craft their own stories. They’ll learn how to develop a plot, create dialogue, and even how to edit their work and publish it. 

While not all children will grow up to be the next Shakespeare, knowing how to write stories will boost communication skills and their confidence. They’ll also use those skills in school reports or essays.
