Adventure Kids Sunday was a tree shaking, puddle jumping & Fun, Fun FUN!!
We started off with the JuJu warm ups and they were challenging today with the balance ones being particularly tough. We tried to keep our legs up high and out to the side but the higher up we put them the harder it got. Everyone did super duper well and after our warm up drills we headed into the forest.
JuJu showed all the kids how to run on the wet rocks, roots and undergrowth and the Dad’s showed us how to shake the trees so that we all got really wet!! The kids ran around the forest jumping over the obstacles and some chased JuJu but they can never catch him however hard they try!!
Soon headed off for short fast run though the forest while working on some drills like donkey kicks and high knees & jumping around... Just having FUN!
The kids are much better at doing these drills now.
And THEN JuJu found a muddy puddle and the kids thought they might just have a little jump in it but NO, the biggest kid of all (and his name begins with “J”) made sure everyone jumped and jumped until they were all truly dirty. Everyone loved it and the dirtier the better on a JuJu run!
Some sprinting uphill was next on the agenda and both the kids and parents joined in…this was easy so the kids were saying, SO to liven things up a bit, We did frog jumps uphill and some find these easier than others!!!
So off we went again, running over the boardwalks and across the road to the barrier where it was time to practice flexibility and get under the barrier…..I know the kids all love this one but the parents not so much…however, today, the parents were super flexible (even if getting up was hard sometimes..he..he!).
We practiced uphill running over obstacles and sure they were all brilliant at that, the downhill not so easy but something we can all work on next sessions.
Then it was time for some jumps and I know most of the kids really love this part of the session..JuJu was teaching the kids to jump safely over the bike ramps and land soft.
We did so much today… the JuJu tug of war was next and the kids were great but the parents always get a little competitive at this “non competitive” game!!
So, game time next and cat and mouse was a fast paced chase around the woods with some hiding their tale in their shorts!!!! The relay races were great fun, with some great running. Speedy kids!
After this it was time to head back to the cars, with a little bridge shaking and a few staring matches on the way home, we all had a wonderful time!!
Until the next time!!
