TIP: What is Earthing? We live on a planet that is alive with natural energies and subtly pulsating frequencies caused by "free electrons." Walking barefoot on the Earth, as humans have done throughout history, naturally discharges electrical stress from our bodies by facilitating the reception of these free electrons up into our system. www.vegoutwithlinda.com - Discover the Power of Food

The snowman: students pretend they are a very solid snowman in the middle of winter that starts to get softer, softer, and eventually melts into water. This is a great way to get students to finish sitting on the floor.

Primary Singing Time - Children need to get wiggles out, especially the Junior Primary. I always make sure that my pianist has a list of "Wiggle Songs" that we can quickly go to if the children are restless. Here is the list that I usually have on hand: Popcorn Popping, Do As I'm Doing, Stand Up, If Your Happy and You Know It, Once There Was a Snowman (I adjust it to each season). Make your list with songs you know you and the children love!

Tree and wind: one student is a palm tree that swings in the air and the other student is the wind. The tree is with eyes closed and the wind gently touches the body of the tree making it swing in the air.

All things in life just are what they are. My only realistic starting place is always the acceptance of what is. Nothing changes for me until I accept it as it is. When I see it clearly, I'm in a position to respond. My response may or may not change what I have accepted. My response, however, always changes me - and that changes everything for me.
The Marionette: one student ties the marionette (another student) by lifting/pulling an imaginary thread and then cuts its strings.

"The Disney Pinocchio Lifesize Marionette is an authentic limited edition replica of the original marionette used in the creation of Walt Disney's animated masterpiece Pinocchio. He comes with all his strings attached and hopefully won't be visited by any wish-granting blue fairies. However, if you do catch this puppet walking, talking and complaining about becoming a real boy in the middle of the night, burn it as fast as you can in a garbage can behind your garage!"
Bubblewrap: great fun. It can be done with the eyes closed as well as walking on it!

The Spiral: have students make circles in the air until they finish in one point in the center. You can have students doing one in front of the other and they touch their fingers when they are done. I usually add a sound to this moment!
