Reply Caroline says: February 1, 2017 at 4:46 am Such a Great Article. Great ideas! I like fat biking for myself. Fat biking is one of the greatest winter activities you can get into Reply Marko @ Parent Support Hub says: May 4, 2017 at 1:32 pm I created a set of alphabet exercise cards (A is for “Arm circles”, B is for “Bounce”, C is for “Crawl”, etc.) and a set of animal exercise cards (R is “Run like a Racehorse”, S is “Slither like a Snake”, T is “Trot slowly like a Turtle”, etc.). I shuffle up the deck and each child gets to draw a card. They can read the letters or the phrase depending on the child’s age. Little ones have to make the animal noise, like “sssss” when they “Slither like a Snake.” Then, we perform each exercise for around one minute. Sometimes I have the kids count, such as “let’s count 20 arm circles,” Marko @ Parent Support Hub recently posted…The Science Behind Spanking Reply Leave a Reply to Kristen Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
