Get Up & Move
While our preschool and adult exercise programs are cancelled, the library will be posting a weekly Get Up & Move challenge to our Facebook page.
Week of March 23rd: Explore your neighborhood. Walk down a street you haven’t walked on before. What did you learn about your neighborhood?
Week of March 30th: With the forecast calling for rain and potential snow this week, we want to offer you some options of things to do indoors.
- For Kids on a screen: switch them over to a fun exercise/movement video for a little dance break. Suggestions include GoNoodle or Stretch-n-Grow of the Rockies.
- Kids off a screen: Imaginative play! Turn the carpet into lava or quicksand and see what sort of extra effort it takes them to get across or have a parade of animal walks. When it’s part of a game, they won’t even realize they’re exercising!
- Adults on a screen: There are lots of free exercise videos available on youtube. Suggestions include Yoga with Adriene or Walk at Home with Leslie Sansone
- Anyone off a screen: Wager for exercise. Add movement to a normally sedentary activity by requiring movement during game play or determined by the outcome. Play war and have the person with the lower score do jumping jacks until their card equals the winning card. Play poker, but wager push ups instead of money. Do jumping jacks everytime you jump the other persons pieces during checkers. Find the game and the exercise that works for you.
