I LOVE The Cat in the Hat! After reading this book, provide different ways (and encourage your children to come up with a few as well) to balance:
  • On one foot
  • On heels
  • On toes
  • Walk on a line of tape
  • Place a line of wooden unit blocks in a row to use as a balance beam if you don't have one.
  • Use bean bags and balance one: on your head, on your elbow, one your back, on your foot!
