Happy Father’s Day to all of our amazing Kid PT Dads!
Dads know just how to bring a laugh and a giggle to the moment.
Check out these ideas to bring some movement fun to celebrate how much your kiddo loves you on Father’s Day!
First, hold each other’s hands. Can you lift one foot and hold it? Try taking turns closing your eyes and see if you can still both keep your balance. Add in singing a song together like the ABCs and see if you can balance all the way to Z.
Next, have Dad get into the Downward Dog position! How many times can the child crawl under, run around to the start, and climb under again! Let’s really challenge Dad with this one!
Finally, its time to fly! There are many fun ways to do this, from piggyback rides to holding the child and zooming around the house. My favorite way is for Dad to lie on his back his his hands and feet up. Dad puts his feet on the child’s belly, holds the child’s hands, and lifts them up! This is so much fun, just be careful. Be sure there is nothing nearby the child can fall on and only go as high as you can control.
What other movement adventures can you have today?
Did you go on a bike ride together, go on a hike or walk to the park?
Have a Happy Father’s Day!!!
