In the gloomy freezing-wind days of winter, it is often hard to keep kids as active as you would like. The chapped lips, runny noses and shivers often limit a child’s tolerance for outdoor play. During those challenging winter months (or on rainy days, in any season), indoor movement activities can help keep kids heart healthy and increase essential fine and gross motor skills. Movement exercises help develop balance and coordination and can instill and life-long love of exercise. Thankfully, there are many free imitation-based movement activities available for free streaming.
Go Noodle – This site offers a great collection of movement activities that will appeal to a wide variety of interests.
Wishing you a bright and active winter!
