Props needed for this week: 2 cups--I just used red solo cups (in the video I said 5, but I only ended up using 2 so you can tell you little one they only need 2)

This week is divided into 3 parts that are about 15-18 minutes each. They could be done all in one sitting one after another, or they are designed to also be done independently so you can break it up into 3 mini lesson throughout the week.

Movement Activities: 

 

Mystery cup—find objects that fit into a cup, pull one out at a time and use those as inspiration for a freeze dance movement

 

Cup relay or obstacle courses—Set up cups like cones for children to run around, jump over, crawl through, etc.

Bubble wrap pop—Have you done any online shopping and ended up with some sort of plastic bubble packaging lately? Save it and when your little one needs something to do pull it out for your child to jump/run/roll on it.  With any plastic packaging be sure to watch out for any choking or suffocation hazards.
