Have you seen peoplets.com?

It’s a new(ish) website about all things kid and if you have children, work with them or even just like them, it’s a terrific resource for everything from exercise, health and nutrition to funny kid stories, videos, photos and quotes.

We love their newest holiday gift idea. Though it’s intended for parents, it can also easily be used by, say, children’s yoga instructors.

If you give your students holiday gifts (remember that they are a tax write-off!), consider piggy banks.

They don’t have to fancy or even big. Or even piggies. Any banks are great. Maybe even bring stickers so they can personalize them.

Encourage your students to save money in them–not for themselves, but for charity. Then at the end of a set period (end of school year, end of year, Valentine’s Day, whatever), everyone brings in his or her money and, as a group, you decide what charity to send it off to (or personally bring it to, if that is an option…maybe a trip to volunteer at the food bank…?).

Consider matching their funds, if that’s feasible for you. And I encourage you to have at least one parent present when you count up the money, so they are assured it’s all going into the donation check and not into your checking account.

And that’s the mini yogis minute tip of the week. Check back every week to learn something new!
