These thirteen new group exercises are featured on an infographic with a description, visual imagery to demonstrate the exercise and some have an embedded video to provide even more effective demonstration. The group exercises were developed with the Bear Paw Creek Stretchy Band and Connect-a-Band in mind.
Both band products have become very popular tools for all types of users, and both are made of latex tubing that can be stretched and pulled in many different ways. There is also a latex-free version available for those with allergies. They are best described as music and movement props which makes them just the right fit for these thirteen new group exercises. Bear Paw Creek introduced their Stretchy Band in 2000, with the Connect-a-Band coming as their second product. Both bands are made in the USA.
The thirteen exercises range from simply sitting in a group circle and singing a familiar song like “Row Your Boat,” to more complex exercises that are designed to help develop and/or improve motor skills. Basically, the company has gathered information on the ways groups have used their bands for fun and teaching activities and they have compiled that information in this informative resource. Each exercise is described fully enough so that anyone can follow the instructions and get started and the person or group who created the exercise is credited.
