#strongertogether …. Stay healthy !!!


Today let’s get silly with our little ones. It´s just so important to still have a laugh and some fun during this time, and not be overwhelmed by the current health situation.

You can make this exercise as long or short as you want. Turn off the news and put some of your favourite music on! Today we are going to preform partner poses with our little ones.

  • Have fun trying to get into some of the partner poses
  • Make it a challenge with the whole family
  • Get into pairs
  • Choose the poses for the other pairs
  • Time each other, who can hold it the longest?
  • Parents v children
  • Mummy and daughter v father and son
  • Be free to make your own challenges out of these wonderful partner poses

What partner poses can I do with the children you may be thinking, well I got you covered! The next page includes pictures of some great partner poses which the children already know, so they are kind of the experts here. Please also check out Lesley’s great video on kids partner poses with the following link.

Believe me when I say partner poses for so beneficial for the children, they are not only fun but have the potential to develop trust, teamwork, leadership and intimacy. The kids love these exercises in kindergarten and love it when you make the process into friendly competition.
