The Easter Bunny is on his way and our Junior GymKids are ready for some hopping fun! Our Easter Theme has our under 5’s bunny hopping all over the gym!
In this eggciting theme, our Junior GymKids will be focusing on the tuck shape (in hang, support and rolling!) and on the bunny hop!
So hop along to gymnastics and enjoy our Easter theme!
Here’s what we will be up to!
Bunny hops are a powerful upper body, strengthening activity which preparing stronger foundations for handstand development.
Our under 5’s will be working on transferring their weight from their hands to their feet (& back again) to co-ordinate a rhythmical bunny hop.
We will be rolling like an easter egg with our tap, tap, tuck and will be squeezing carrots between our knees to keep our shape just right! Rocking like a little easter egg is harder than we imagine. Don’t let the egg crack! Rocking is a vestibular core building activity for our little ones and we are encouraging a nice tight tuck shape!
When we come to bars we are continuing our theme with lots of fun easter activities – easter egg tucks hangs, squeezing carrots between knees and climbing the ladder to post our easter eggs!
Egg and Spoon races and activities are great fun and work on our littlies fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
Watch out for some sleeping bunnies during warm up (not to mention some carrot thieves!)
Our Jnr Gym Kids love playing our warm up games. Not only are they exciting, theme based and lots of fun, they offer loads of learning opportunities, building children’s “game sense”.
You have probably heard us talk about game sense before! Developing game sense is another of our school ready activities we focus on at Junior GymKids. Being able to join in games, supports kids social and emotional development, preparing them for the coming years as they move from play based to more formal school setting.
Well with Easter just around the corner, we are definitely ready at Junior GymKids. Follow the bunnies and get ready for a fun Easter Theme!
