K. Big Mat Fun

Big Mat Fun (crawlers and walkers)

Why: To explore Balance and gain confidence trying new things.

How: Toddlers can monkey walk or swim to the mat. Once there encourage them to climb up elbow, elbow, belly and knee.  Next they can crawl and/or walk across the mat to their parent.  Use toys as incentive to keep moving and cups for extra conditioning!

Challenge More Advanced Students to sit down and slide in or jump off the mat and submerge at the end.
