We all know the drill when the '70s song "Y.M.C.A." comes on the radio. Take a cue from the Village People and show your kids how to form letters with their bodies. Have them work together to create letters or form their names or short words, either in a standing position or lying flat on the ground. Snap pictures of their letters so they can see how great they look.
Take the classic game of Mirror to gigantic proportions. Have two monsters (aka kids) face each other and mirror each other's movements. Of course, monsters will use BIG motions, with their arms and legs fully extended. Comb that monster hair: It's so long they'll need to stretch all the way to the ground. Wash a monstrous window, way up high. Take a deep breath and growl out a monster roar!
