Brain Breaks

Gonoodle is a great website that provides ways for kids and families to move and learn together.

Indoor Brain Breaks

  • Jumping jacks, jump rope, or other jumps. Challenge your child to do a certain number of several kinds of jumps, or to see how many jumps he can do in 60 seconds.
  • Play "keep-it-up" with a beach ball or balloon.
  • March or high-step around the house.
  • Run, skip, or grapevine down a hallway (or do a combination of moves).
  • Do push-ups, sit-ups, or planks: How about a family plank challenge?
  • Do yoga poses or stretches.
  • Bear crawl or crab walk across the room and back.
  • Have a dance party—just one or two songs.
  • Balance test: Put a paper plate on your head and walk across the room. Make it harder by adding something to the plate, like a beanbag (easy), or a ping pong ball (harder).
  • Run in place.

Outdoor Brain Breaks

  • Walk around your backyard.
  • Bike, scooter, or in-line skate.
  • Play fetch with your dog.
  • Play catch with a parent, sibling or friend.
  • Dribble a soccer ball or basketball, or shoot baskets.
  • Draw a hopscotch court and play a game.
  • Run across the yard. See how long it takes you to get from one fence to the other. Then try to beat your time.
