DANCING CHEEK TO CHEEK

Next time you’re having a kitchen disco, say”Dancing cheek to cheek!” then dance with yourcheek against theirs as you count to 8. Vary theshapes and moves you make by naming differentbody parts – “dancing knee to shoulder” anyone?

SCARF KITES

This is a great idea for a windy day – take a scarf outside and fly it like a kite! Or if there isn’t much wind, you can run around with your scarf in the
air and see the different shapes and you can make as you swish and swirl around.

SILLY WALKS

Start by pretending one part of your body – a foot, a hand, a shoulder – has a life of its own and is “dragging” you along. ‘Heeeeeeeeeelp! My foot is out of control!’

TICKLE PICTURES

For babies, trace words like “I love you” on their tummy as you chat with them. For wee ones able to sit up/stand and scribble, say shapes, letters and numbers as you trace them on their back.

MONKEY TEN

Yell “Monkey 10! 9, 8…” and countdown to zero while you move like monkeys. Bonus points for monkey voices, whatever they are.
