As a former teacher, I have some ideas to keep kids entertained indoors. Make paper helicopters from folding the paper in half. Then cut the top half in half perpendicular to the fold lines, stopping at the fold. Next, cut on the top folded line one third of the way on each side. Fold each third of the top in half to make two helicopter blades. Bend these in opposite directions. Cut the lower fold one third of the way on each side. Fold each third to make the middle piece. Finally, fold the bottom piece up at the tip to give the helicopter some weight at the bottom. Drop the copter from a second floor railing and watch it twirl. Making the blades wider or different lengths, varies the speed of the drop. Kids get excited over this activity.
Great post, very timely for me. In searching for info on consecutive days running, I was very fortunate to find this. I have done “streaks” before, but not with running. 100 push ups a day for 100 days was my latest. lately being in a bit of a running slump, and feeling a little down because of some runners knee issues. I figured why not do some easier running everyday, not just a lot of hard running to get ready for a race. This is just what I need to “breathe some new life” into my running as you said. My first official day is tomorrow, although I ran yesterday and will run today. I am doing the running, in conjunction with another 100 push up streak. Thanks for this post! Happy running.
