Tumble Tots at Home TAKE 2!

Providing activities and entertainment to little ones at home!

5th November 2020

Tumble Tots (UK) Ltd

When the first lockdown was announced back in March and our classes were sadly postponed, Technical Director, Charlotte Bedford had a brain wave…

She decided to keep the momentum of classes going by streaming LIVE on Facebook every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to deliver fun physical activities, games and exercises for pre-school children to watch and take part in from home FREE of charge.

We saw THOUSANDS of viewers tune in not only from the UK but across the world and we made some great new friends along the way.

Charlotte turned her life and living room upside down but little did she know that this would go on for almost 6 months… When classes were back up and running in September, Charlotte packed away all her equipment and was finally able to sit on her own sofa, or so she thought…

Well, move aside sofa because Tumble Tots at Home is BACK for Take 2! As lockdown has been announced again and classes have been temporarily postponed again, Charlotte will be live AGAIN!

We know that lockdown can and will be a difficult time for families with children which is why we have decided to provide these virtual classes once more.

Tumble Tots believes that physical exercise is so important for children’s development, and both physical and mental health so whilst classes are closed we want to do everything we can to keep littles ones happy, healthy and entertained!

So tune in LIVE on Facebook every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10am starting Monday 9th November!

Members and non-members are all invited to join in with the sessions and although you don’t need anything to take part, we recommend you make some space in your living rooms ready for action!

You can join in on Facebook LIVE every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10am, or if you miss the LIVE session, you can catch up with us later as the videos will be published on Facebook as well as uploaded to YouTube.

Tune in on your computer, laptop, tablet or mobile OR watch on the big screen! If you have a smart TV, try the Facebook video app on Apple TV, Amazon Fire or Samsung Smart TVs.

Make sure you comment on the live videos so Charlotte can say hello to you and your little ones don’t forget to share videos and photos of your little ones joining in at home!

During lockdown, we want to keep little ones as entertained as possible so in addition to the LIVE Facebook sessions, we have also been putting together other activities to do at home which help with the development of physical, social and cognitive skills (as well as being super fun!)


ACTIVITIES WITH EVERYDAY OBJECTS

1) Gather a selection of boxes or saucepans along with a couple of wooden spoons. Arrange them in a space, put on ‘Grand Old Duke of York’ and bang the boxes just like a drum.

2) Gather a selection of forks and spoons (or something similar), find a space and ask your little one to make different shapes.

3) Gather a selection of different coloured household items i.e. socks, crayons, etc. Encourage your little one to identify the colours, then task them to collect certain items i.e. 2 red items, all the yellow items, maybe one of each, etc.

4) Using a selection of boxes or clean and empty food containers i.e. Yoghurt Pots, ask your little one to build a tower, give them something to roll and encourage them to roll the object to knock the tower down!

5) Gather some cardboard or paper and different shaped items then, using different coloured pens or pencils ask your little one to draw around the objects. With supervision, cut the shape out and name that shape!

6) Gather a selection of empty bottles, line them up in a row (just like a row of Skittles), find an object to roll and see how many you can knock over!


ACIVITY GRID

Download our Activity Grid and ask little ones to colour in the squares when they’ve completed the task!

We also have a version for Gymbobs (older children) which is slightly more challenging.
