I actually created Move With Me Action Adventures to help parents and teachers provide not just more kids yoga and kids fitness and life skills learning for their children, but also to give them the opportunity to enjoy more daily special playtime with them. I want to make it easy to connect through play and model joy, health and fitness for your kids. Hopefully, the Move With Me DVDs and these regular PLAYTIME TIPS will give you a terrific jump-start to making special time a daily event.

PLAYTIME TIP #1: Feather Catch and Painting:
Find or buy some craft feathers and drinking straws. Pick 2-3 feathers and throw them up in the air like leaves. Try to catch them before they hit the ground. Play this inside or out until yo're both tired.
Then slide the stem of the feather into a drinking straw. This is your pretend paint brush. Ask your child how they want their face painted and then transform them! Make sure that it feels soothing. Then invite him/her to paint your face or let your painting evolve into a relaxing feel-good feather massage anywhere that doesn't tickle. Be gentle and soothing. Show your child how to be that way, too. Enjoy ....
