MOVE Group Short Stretching & Body Awareness ideas

  • Let’s get moving! – If you have a Move programme, then get busy making some of your moves this week.If not, you can try some yoga with Squish the Fish: A Cosmic Kids Yoga Adventure. See it here.  You don’t have to watch all of it at once, as it’s quite long. Try a little each day.Ask your family to join in too!

  • To the music of ‘Match of the Day’ music – ball activities.Can you push the ball using your hands, or kick the ball with your foot; you could take turns with someone else in your house.You could try picking the ball up in your hand(s) and putting in a container to ‘score.’ How about experiencing the ball being rolled over your body; this could be with light pressure, or firm pressure depending on what you like – or both!  Light pressure first and then firm pressure.Try out some of these activities and let me know what you think.
  • Good Morning Music – start from 1 minute in.  Listen and dance, or pat over your child’s body, in time to the music.
