PE at Home? Yes! Ideas from Mrs. Mikalis:

  • Just Dance! - You can find different songs and dances on youtube. 
  • Ball Drumming – put a ball into a bucket, bowl, or even cup depending on the size of your ball. You can even use a yoga ball if you have one. Use two wooden spoons, pencils, chopsticks, etc as your drumstick. Make up your own routine to a song or follow one of these on youtube. Here are a couple of great examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLNflsTOAV0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwWYA_oPbU0 

 Cup Stacking – plastic cups work great. You can do a 3x3, 6x6 or 10x10. Here’s a great introduction link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F89vHYoM8XM
