Four Tips for Getting Active
Looking for some ideas to promote movement this week? Here are four tips that are easily adaptable for children of all abilities.
1) Kids Yoga
There are lots of different poses you can use and you can even help a child make up their own pose. Here is a great resource for adding yoga into your life.
2) Simon Says
Simon Says is a great way to promote movement and work on basic verbs while building skills for following directions. For children who are older, try two-step directions.
3) I Spy
The I Spy guessing game can take place anywhere. Take a walk around your neighborhood or move around your house having fun spying objects and guessing.
4) Scavenger Hunt
Much like I Spy, you can have a scavenger hunt anywhere, anytime. Inside or outside, scavenger hunts promote movement and creative thinking. Here are some great scavenger hunt templates to use or to inspire your own.
