Welcome back to the 10 Days to Conquer series! Last time, we conquered clothing fasteners. Today’s workout is…
Ok, I’m going to really put myself out there today. Here it goes…I, Claire Heffron, don’t know how to do a cartwheel. There. I said it.
I can’t tell you how many times I tried as a kid, only to have my arms buckle or my legs not kick up high enough. Watching my sister cartwheel circles around me on our front lawn didn’t help matters.
As an adult, I’ve moved on to trying to conquer a handstand as part of my yoga practice – similar skill…and similar frustration! So I’ll be working on conquering this skill right along with your kids! :)
Doing a cartwheel is tough. It requires coordination, balance, lots of core strength, flexibility, and some good leg strength too. Plus, kids have to be confident and secure in the feeling of going upside down, which brings the vestibular system into play.
Help your kiddo work up to doing a cartwheel with this free printable 10-day workout. Each day, your child can complete the fun and simple activities or exercises, getting him closer and closer to her goal!
Simply print off the workout and get started! You can use the first printable sheet as your guide, or cut out the larger circles on pages 2 and 3, punch a hole in the top of each, and put them on a ring to bring with you on the go!

Is your child dying to do a cartwheel? Maybe she won’t rest until she can make her way across the monkey bars. Or maybe he has his heart set on conquering some other skill that will get him a little cred on the playground.
If so, you’re in the right place! This is what our 10 DAYS TO CONQUER series is all about!
In this series of posts, you’ll find fun and simple 10-day workouts kids can do to work up to a skill that they really want to master.
These mini workouts are perfect for a therapist working with a child on one of these skills or for a parent looking to support his or her child’s development of a specific skill.
Kids will love working day by day to achieve their goals. And while we can’t make any guarantees that little ones will master the skill by the end of the 10 days, we can guarantee that you and your kids will have a blast trying and that every little bit of work will get them closer and closer to their goal!
