  • Fingerpaints! You can actually use pudding as fingerpaints too.. that way they can eat it as well!
    Gluing things together (paper, ribbons, cotton balls etc..)
    Put 2 paint colors together in a ziplock bag and have the kids squish the bags to mix the colors and make new colors!

    but you can take most adult yoga videos and adjust them to something fun for kids. My son does "the tree" with me every day. You start out in standing pike ( hands down legs together standing straight) and sway, then you add branches to your tree (stick your arms up and out and sway, then you add roots to your tree and bend (sway) in all directions.
    My son likes to try and do palates with me to. It's really funny to watch

  • Thanks! I've been wanting to get into yoga, so the thought of getting the tyke into it a little bit is something I like. He used to try to do my pilates with me, lol, back when I actually used to do them. :)
