Starting the year off with simple and fun!
Go paper plate skating.
I got this super idea from my contributor Lorien when she wrote about 5 game changers for a crazy day.
Grab two paper plate and throw them on the floor. And let the kids at it! They’ll probably know what to do.
One foot per plate and skate wherever they want to go. It goes great on hardwood and carpet both.
It’s easier for kids to remove their socks so their feet ‘naturally’ stick to the plates (or are my kids the only ones with super sweaty feet?).
If you don’t remove socks, you can tape the plates onto their feet.
We did that for Louis (which shocks me because he always takes his socks off instantly).
This is also a great gross motor activity to get kids moving indoors. You can find more indoor gross motor activities here.
