Yoga is not so peaceful, Dinosaur hurdling and a timeout.

In honor of the olympics I designed a special race. Dinosaur hurdling!
Take two yoga mats and put them side by side.
Now, on my yoga mat, put one dinosaur about 1/3 of the way from the end.
On the other put three near the end, but just far enough apart to put a foot.
Now race. Who gets to the end first and doesn't step on a dino wins.
For extra challenge, add Evelyn. Participants must evade her as she tried to steal the hurdles.

I think mommy was trying to calm Sloan down when she suggested trying some yoga. I don't think anyone will be surprised when I explain that it didn't work.
But some new yoga moves were invented. I've listed them below.
1. Horsey: This move starts with you in the table position. Then second person (Sloan) leaps on your back when you are not prepared and starts chanting "Giddyup". Ends when either rider falls off or horse goes into child pose and they slip off.
2. Squishy hero: 1st person starts in child pose. 2nd person leaps on back. 1st person moves from child pose into hero pose - squishing 2nd person against couch. Repeat until giggling makes it too difficult to continue.
3. Death from above: This seems to be based on cats and 5 yr olds. 1st person is Fire Log pose. 2nd person leaps at you and 1st person must catch before collision can occur.
4. Rest in Peace: 1st person starts in Corpse pose. As serenity asserts itself and you feel the worries sliding away... 2nd person will have leapt onto your core as hard as they can. (Recommend only once per session)
