Sing a Song
We Can Jump
It is good to be healthy. Jumping around and exercising can be fun! Here is a song you can sing while you jump and play!
We can jump, jump, jump!
We can hop, hop, hop!
We can clap, clap, clap!
We can stop, stop, stop!
We can nod our heads for "Yes,"
We can shake our heads for "No,"
We can bend our knees a little bit,
Cosmic Kids Yoga: Very Hungry Caterpillar
Exercise by giving your child a sequence of two things to do such as "Jump up, then sit down." Then increase to three things such as "Touch your nose, turn around, and then sit down." Also sing "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" to keep that energy up!
