Homeschool Fitness: Easy Physical Activities to Incorporate in Everyday Life
This post is sponsored by Fitivities. All thoughts and words are my own.
I've been sharing with you about the importance of physical activity and movement in your homeschool. Read Get Moving in Your Homeschool for encouragement to make exercise a regular practice in your homeschool, A Few Good Reasons to Be Active in Your Homeschool for my reasons why you should make it a point to get you and your children moving, and Blending Fitness with Academics for tips to mesh movement with learning.
In the last post of the Fitness in Your Homeschool series, I want to share with you some our favorite go-to exercises. These exercises work a variety of muscles and are easy to to incorporate into any part of the day. You don't have to be dressed in your workout gear or P. E. clothes to do them.
Four Exercises for All Ages
Seal Walk: Work your upper body muscles by moving forward on your hands and dragging your legs behind.
Monkey Dance: Work cross laterally by touching your opposite elbow to your knee.
Skipper:Get a full body work out by skipping in a circle.
Flamingo Stance: Get better balanced and work your lower body by standing on one foot at a time.
The cards pictured in the photo are from Fitivities. I appreciate having 26 exercises to chose from in easy reach.
