Channel Your Spirit Animal: 4 Animal Themed Gymnastics Moves to Do with Your Little Ones

Spirit Animal Mom Daughter Yoga

Do you want a fun activity to get outside and release some energy?

Channel your inner spirit animal, and try these animal walks!

Your little gymnast might recognize some of the moves, at Pac West Gymnastics we love activities that increase strength with maximum silliness. Enjoy the sunshine and the giggles, get outside, and have some fun!

1. Frog Jumps

Start in a squat position, with your arms by your feet and your knees by your elbows, then press through your legs, bring your arms to the sky, and jump as high as you can, landing back in the squat position! This move is perfect for building leg muscle, and of course, practicing your “rabbits”.

See how to do frog jumps here

2. Bear Walks

Start with your hands and feet on the ground, and start walking, taking a step with the same side arm and the same side leg, and switch! Some little bears might even get onto the back legs and “roar”! Bear walks are a fun way to increase motor skill development, body awareness, and increase core, shoulder, and arm strength!

3. Inch Worms

Start with straight legs, and bring your hands down by your feet. Then, using baby steps, walk your hands out until your hands are under your shoulders in a push-up position, and baby step your feet up to your hands! Inch worms are exceptional at developing motor skills, core strength, upper body strength, and increasing flexibility in hamstrings!

4. Crab Walks

Start sitting on your bottom in a tuck position (bent knees and feet on the ground). Place straight arms on either side of yourself, and lift your bottom in the air, so you are in a table position! Then, start walking around! Bonus points if you can lift an arm to show your claws!
