Here are some activities you can do at home to help stay active when not at gymnastics
Neighborhood Eye Spy
Now mind you - Wisconsin weather needs to be kind to us for this one! Make a list of different objects
you might see in a neighborhood. Bundle up and go for a walk, crossing off the objects as you spot them!
Indoor Obstacle Courses
Grab all of your pillows, couch cushions, ect and make an obstacle course. The kids will LOVE
this. Kids ages 4-6 can even help you build it! You can time older kiddos to see if they can improve how quickly they can complete it!
Describe animals to your kiddos - have them guess what animal you are describing, then have them walk around
the house the way that animal walks!
Get creative with your sidewalk chalk! Make a hopscotch on the driveway or sidewalk - again, get
creative! Have your kids help design the hopscotch!
Your child can practice balancing without an actual beam! Use painters tape or masking tape to create lines
for your kids to walk on. Depending on their age, they can walk forward, sideways, backwards, on their tip toes, ect. Weather permitting, you could also draw different line patterns with
sidewalk chalk outside on the driveway.
So simple yet so fun! Play with your kiddos - see how many times you can hit it before it touches
