Whether you’re dealing with a mini Van Gogh, a bouncy little dancer or a Hollywood actress in the making, we’ve got some great ways for you to enjoy time together as a family.
Have fun with these activities suggested by us at Forest Arts Centre…
1. Dance around the living room
Keep all the family fit and healthy with this fun dance game. You need a pen, some paper, a dice and music...
Think of and write down six movements, then allocate a number to each e.g.
Take it in turns to roll the dice and write down the associated movement (e.g. roll 1, write down turn) - keep rolling the dice as many times as you like. Once you’re happy with the dance routine you've created, you’re ready to put on your favourite song, practice and perform together!
2. Get those tiny toes tapping
If you have a very lively toddler at home, set aside 20 minutes to join in and dance with our Tiny Toes tutor, Lauren. Enjoy lots of colour, fun and creativity…
Here is little Hallie enjoying her time with mum dancing in the living room.
