It’s been a while since we offered a custom design with our Super Stickers product line. This week, we have another small one for ya, perfect for a quick brain break once school comes back into session!
All you need is a corner, be it in a classroom or a coat room. The space does not need to be large, or even empty. That’s the great thing about our Super Stickers line; they’re easy to place and look great anywhere.
The layout here is meant to be simple, but effective. The point of a brain break is to maximize movement in the shortest amount of time, no more than five or 10 minutes. Therefore, the products that make up the brain break shouldn’t be complicated: a few Super Stickers in a few places will do the trick.
Have the kids cycle through the brain break in turns. The brain break itself can be laid out in two ways: one, like an activity circuit, or two, like activity stations. For this design, we’ll use the activity circuit layout.
Place the Sticker Jumping Jacks Super Sticker first in the line. Have the kids start with 10 jumping jacks, but increase as necessary for age and fitness level. Next, place the Sticker Squats. Have them do another 10, but as fast as they can. The point here is to get the blood pooling in the legs, which increases fatigue and starts “the burn.” Immediately after the squats, place the Sticker Lunges, followed at last by the Sticker Wall Push-Up Set – 24 pieces on the nearest wall! When they’re finished, have them cycle through the set again and again until the brain break is up.
How to Use
Really simple! Just have the kids run through the design like an activity circuit, taking turns in groups of five or six. Have them cycle through the design multiple times in rapid succession, increasing their heart rate and getting the blood pumping. Allow each group five or ten minutes, preferably in the morning or a few hours after lunch.
Just make sure they’ve had enough time to digest all their food!
