"Brain Break sticks! Each popsicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc.}. When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break, lets do a brain break. The kids absolutely go NUTS for these fun little activities. None last longer than a minute and it's a great way to get them focused!"
