Today’s 10 Days to Conquer workout for kids will help little ones learn how to do a cartwheel!
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!

I’m going to print this one for my daughter. She’s been trying so hard but can’t seem to manage it. I hope this will help. (P.S. I can’t do a cartwheel either, lol!)
Hi Emma! Hooray! Can’t wait to hear about your daughter’s success with her cartwheels! And thank you for admitting that you can’t do one either…it makes me feel so much better to know I’m not alone! :) We’ll conquer it together!

I love this! I can’t do one either & always wanted to. When I saw this series I thought maybe my daughter & I can learn together this summer. I read your post & your comment, how fun! I’m glad I’m not alone! Were you able to learn it? I think my biggest problem now is the fear factor I didn’t have when I was younger… and knowing things hurt more not than when I was younger ; )
