28 Days of Mindfulness

DAY 26

Movement activities for kids

Master Instructor Trainer Laureen DuBeau shows how she gets her kids moving in small spaces.

Every parent needs a new game idea at the ready. So when the kids come to you telling you they’re bored, let them loose with a pack of paper/plastic plates and a ball and watch the fun unfold.

Sometimes kids just need a little nudge in the right direction to set their imaginations free. Once they start moving and playing, they can often keep a game going for some time on their own, says Merrithew Master Instructor Trainer Laureen DuBeau.

Give them a suggestion and provide them with the props, toys and balls, and let them take over and make the rules.

In this video, Laureen demonstrates how she gets her kids moving around in unconventional ways.
