Movement Zone: Gross Motor Activities to Support Your Kids’ Physical Activity Needs

I know your kids are literally climbing the walls (and mine are too 🧗) so let’s talk about how to support your kids’ physical activity needs with gross motor activities – or what I like to call, a Movement Zone.  We have had a movement zone even before #coronatimes but we have had to completely transform our living room into a full on ninja warrior course 🏃 – with little upfront investment and work. 

I don’t need to educate you on why recess is important for kids.

We know that recess is important for children in school – but how can we get the same benefits with children who are at home feeling cooped up? Today, I want you to create some kind of dedicated movement zone to help your kids burn energy!


Take a look around your space and see what you can do to support your child’s movement. It’s time to get creative! Dedicate a room for your little ones to get out the energy they NEED to get out! 🤼‍♀️

  1. Take out any sharp or breakable objects and move away the wooden furniture (spoiler alert: House & Garden isn’t coming to feature your home right now. 🤣)
  2. Gather all your soft and fluffies. 🧸 Lay them out for climbing on, over, or through. Gather all your cushions, pillows, bean bags and blankets! 
  3. Pump up that music 🎵 and set some challenges. “Only step on the green!” “Do the obstacle course with your hands behind your back!” “Get from one side to the other while blindfolded!”
  4. Do whatever it takes to get your kids moving! Heck, even hang a swing! (It’s much easier than you think. 😲) Get a climbing dome! Check out my Instagram highlights to see the swings, ropes, ladders, and bars hanging in our living room.

Encourage Your Kids’ Physical Activity with Fun Gross Motor Activities

Create a movement zone in your home and show us your work! Post a picture 📸 on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #PlayPandemic for a chance to be featured! Supporting your kids’ physical activity through gross motor activities like lifting, balancing, climbing and jumping allows them to sink more deeply into their independent play throughout the rest of the day – which means Mama gets to feel those benefits too 💆!

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Check out my IGTV for more amazing success stories.⁣

Parent In Love is a 6-month deep-dive online program that will transform your marriage from the inside out. ⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣
