We would like to say a BIG congratulation to Karen Williams our YogaBugs Teesside Regional Manager, who is celebrating her first year With YogaBugs in style by securing 45 hours per week in schools and nurseries in the Teesside area for the new school term in September.

Since Karen joined YogaBugs in August 2014, she has been off to a flying start with so many Head Teachers and PE Co-Ordinators loving the YogaBugs’ ethos and recommending her to others in the area – she is proud to be stretching the imagination of so many children in schools and nurseries in her territory.

Please see below a fantastic testimonial from one of the schools Karen is currently working in….

“The days Karen comes in to work with our nursery children are always so exciting for us all – children and staff love her!  She has a really good manner with the children and always tries to link with our curriculum which has been lovely to see.  As this year is progressing we can see how well the children are responding to the exercises she does with them, now she can say the name of one of the familiar postures and the children respond by getting themselves into the correct position.  We are all big advocators of YogaBugs in Nursery and Karen is doing a marvellous job with the children”.

Kate JukesNursery Teacher at Green Lane Primary Academy, Acklam. 

When we caught up with Karen and asked her what made her choose YogaBugs this time last year this is what she said…

“Following eleven years as a primary school teacher and after having my two children, I began looking for a better work/life balance that would allow me to combine my love of working with children and my desire to run my own business. When I came across YogaBugs I knew it was the right thing for me! Children can be introduced to the benefits of yoga whilst most importantly using their imagination and having fun I love seeing the impact that YogaBugs can have on children who take part in our classes”.

Karen has truly taken her first year with YogaBugs by storm, and we cannot wait to see the growing impact that she will have on schools and nurseries in her area in the 2015/16 new school term!

Well Done Karen,

Keep up the great work!

Summer fun with a sparkly explosion

Hi folks,
Amy here I am writing the blog today, with the kids breaking up from school this week, sometimes finding fun and imaginative things to do can be a hassle. That’s where I come in to help!

My Niece Olivia has been asking and asking to do some fun science experiments that sparkle and explode. Which I don’t mind as who doesn’t want to make things explode, takes me back to when I was at school in science class, hiding behind the desk while my science teach put mentos into a Pepsi bottle and watched it bounce around the room. But don’t worry this little experiment isn’t as messy! I hope you have as much fun as we did!

Supplies you need for a sparkly explosion.

  •  Vase
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  •  Food colouring (we used red to make it look like an explosion)
  • Glitter (we used blue to make it stand out from the red)
  •  Pan or box to contain the mess
  • Other supplies (look at step 4)

The 4 easy steps

  1. Place 2-3 tablespoons baking soda in the bottom of the vase and then place the vase in the pan/box.
  2. Add 6-7 drops of food colouring and 1-2 teaspoons of glitter (colour of your choice).
  3. Quickly pour in half a cup of vinegar and watch out for the sparkles!
  4. When all the action is over, why not repeat the experiment but this time let your child choose what to add. What does pepper look like in an explosion instead of glitter? Does adding salt change anything? Let your child or sibling change the variables and before you add the vinegar to make it explode, why not predict what will happen and see if anyone guesses right!

Enjoy watching your little ones faces when they see the explosion, they will be sure to want to do it again and will keep them occupied.

I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog, stay tuned for another great idea to do with your kids over the summer term.
