Without the paint…he’s just a tire. Give him a name…and kids are more engaged.
With the Garbage Can Races…kids have to push the can in a 30 yard course, open the lid, squat down, pick up a sports ball, stand up, drop it in and push on to the next ball and do it all over again. They repeat this 4-5x then run/pull the can back to the finish line. The multi-faceted functional body movement is fantastic…the kids LOVE IT…and it shows them you can do ANYTHING to be active and have fun.
In this case…this little girl had watched her Big Bro do it…then she wanted to…then she said she’d only do it if he pushed…and she picked up the balls…ALAS, a new game was created…and this is another example of what we push: Creativity…and Teamwork!
