On Thursdays, during the month of January, I have Luke signed up for a "Toddler Gym Time" at our local recreation center.
It started last Thursday, the 6th, but we were unable to go as Luke was slightly under the weather.
Today, however, Luke was GOOD TO GO....I'm glad we went since after today, there are only two classes left.
Since it's been so cold, Luke's been needing a way to release some energy. This class was a good way to do that -- for a bit, anyways.
I was impressed with the organization -- I think it was organized as well as one can for having 10 toddlers and their mothers/baby-sitters.
To start out....the parachute was brought out. Luke LOVED this....The photos don't do any justice. I had a hard time getting good photos this morning since this class is most definitely "parent involved." It's hard to take photos as well as participate.
Then, all of the kids did some "dancing in the hoops" while music played. When the music stopped, they were to FALL suddenly to the floor. It took a bit for Luke to "get" this activity.
For the rest of the time, the kids did things like use bats to hit balloons (watch out on this one), bowl, and play with "tumbling equipment."
Overall, I'd say, at least so far, this was a VERY WORTH WHILE activity to enroll Luke in.
We might just have to do it again :)
A trip back in time
