About the activity
In a soft, grassy, open space, get your child/children to warm up their body first by doing some jumps and stretches. Depending on how much gymnastics experience they’ve had, get them to practise different moves and positions. Can they stand on one leg? Close their eyes and keep their balance? Reach down and touch their toes? Perform a forward roll or a cartwheel? What different jumps and leaps can they do? Once they’ve mastered their moves, get them to choreograph and perform their own gymnastics routine!
