Have you ever noticed that kids go exceptionally crazy on rainy days? Perhaps it’s something in the air or the novelty of rain after the dry heat. A more likely theory is they are couped up inside with boundless energy and no outlet, so they simply go a bit, well, coo-coo!
So on those crazy wet days like today, Kids Heart Pilates have designed an easy to follow at home kids workout called:
‘Get Your Silly’s Out’
Exercise 1. – Let’s warm up our inner ‘kitty cats’ (do 3 seconds on each move)
Happy Cat- ‘Happy Cat stick your bottom out, look to me and big smiles’
Angry Cat-look to your knees and push your back up to the sky’
Disco Cat (no image-Bounce around as if dancing to music).
Exercise 2. – Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No It’s Superman! (do for 3-5seconds)
Exercise 3. – Let’s Go for a Bike Ride – 3 lots of 10 seconds
Exercise 4-Let’s roll down the hill- ball rolling x 3
Exercise 5: Ribbit Ribbit- Let’s Jump Like a Frog – 10 x jumps
