Yesterday, while waiting for a friend for dinner, I passed by the hardware store to check out rubber mats. I was thinking this might be a good alternative for the mats I need. Yes, I know it isn’t really a yoga mat, but I was imagining that maybe it could be something I can use in the meantime. Let’s face it…I can’t afford to invest in 15 new mats right about now. Anyway, while I was at the store, I decided to look around and let my imagination run wild, just like when I was a preschool teacher. I saw some superdidooper cute cat toys that I thought of using as props for a kids class (no, it wasn’t a scratcher! It was like a bell on a stick with some really cute colored feathers at the tip), I imagined how the soft ropes and rubber stoppers can be made into cute toys, and I even took pause and thought of what I can do with a double jacket fire hose! I remember that as a preschool teacher, I had a whole lotta teacher made toys that were fabulous Seriously though, I saw this post in Facebook recently about braiding together plastic bags and it came out looking like a rope. That’s what inspired the whole let’s check the hardware thought came from! Hehe. Do you have any creative ways of making yoga props? Do let me know if you do!
