Brighter, sunnier skies and warmer weather are ahead for me….maybe not in Ohio, but I am beach and vacation bound! :) Before I go, I had to share some of the creative movement activities that you all shared on our Facebook page last Monday. And, in case you missed some of our fabulous child development ideas from this week, here’s a quick recap:
ABCs of DEVELOPMENT: NEWBORN REFLEXES: what are all of those jerky, involuntary movements in your baby?
10 DAYS TO CONQUER A SOMERSAULT: Part of our series of mini workouts for kids to help them tackle common rites of passage like the monkey bars, a cartwheel, and more!
LET’S GET STARTED WITH YOUR IDEAS…
HANDS ON AS WE GROW || Do you have toddler that is non-stop movement? This post has a whole slew of ideas to keep toddlers busy and hopefully wear them out! They are easy to set up, fun to do and will be sure to encourage lots of whole body movement.
THE CHAOS AND THE CLUTTER || Keeping with the theme of busy, active kids, this list of fun art activities that incorporate gross motor movement is so much fun and so creative! Fly swatter painting anyone?
THE JENNY EVOLUTION || As Jenny says, painting outdoors is “more than just making a pretty picture. It is a full-on sensory experience that gets kids using their bodies, imagination and senses”. LOVE IT!! Check out what you need to get started with outdoor painting!
HAPPY MOVEMENT MONDAY!
