Do you ever feel like Garfield, and just wish Monday's wouldn't arrive? Or that sleeping through them would just feel oh so great, and you could wake up Tuesday fresh as summer rain?
Even though we homeschool, sometimes Monday's can be crazy! What better way to deal with a crazy day than to have a dance party complete with a karaoke machine?
Several months ago (when it was still snowy) we acquired a karaoke machine. Although we haven't used it for its intended purpose, we often put on music we love, grab a microphone and start singing. Usually, one or 2 of us put on a song performance while the others dance away until we're out of breath.
Then the next person takes over singing and the dancing continues until we're all tired and happy.
Sometimes we make up games with a pair of dice, (or just one) where each number represents a new dance move or action.
Here are a few moves we use when we roll the die:
Roll 1 and clap your hands once
Roll 2 and hop on one foot two times
Roll 3 and wave your hands while spinning 3 times
Roll 4 and do 4 popcorn kernel jumps (scrunch down into a ball and jump up from that position, opening arms and legs as though you're exploding)
Roll 5 and do 5 robot moves
Roll 6 and spin on your bum 6 times
Whether you make up your own moves, play freeze dance ( where everyone freezes when the music stops) or follow along to someone else's moves dancing is a great way to let off some steam and brighten up any morning.
Peace and love.
