Balance and Movement Poses

Did you know poses are a great way for children to practice there coordination and balance? That's why we have balance pose activity guides! You can download a guide below for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years old that will help your child work on their physical literacy.

3–5 year olds
5-8 year olds
8-12 year olds 

While schools are closed, kids may not be getting the recommended 60 minutes of vigorous physical activity per day that they would normally receive as part of their physical education curriculum. In a situation of isolation, children are deprived of the support of their peers. This support helps kids be more active.

Try this goal setting activity with your children as a tool for generating positive change, and to help them get motivated! Goal setting isn't just for adults — being goal-oriented is a critical part of how children gain the ability to find and use available resources to solve problems and shape their future. When children can see progress, they feel more capable and it boosts their confidence.
