What a wonderful evening for a concert! The weather was perfect, the venue was great and the music amazing! Jim Cosgrove, aka Mr. Stinky Feet had families off their feet dancing, singing and having fun.

Hope to see you at our next group connection!

Why Cross midline?

Crossing midline is required for the right and left sides of the brain to communicate. The more they communicate, the stronger the connection between the two. If the two sides of the brain do not communicate and work together, they are out of sync and one area dominates the other causing academic, behavioral, language, physical and/or social challenges. The key to helping our children be calmer, happier and functioning at their best is to get their whole brain working together. Imagine a line going down the middle of your body. Whenever your arms or legs cross that line to the other side of your body, that is crossing midline. Simple and fun crossing midline activities includes:

-driving cars on a large path -drawing on large paper on wall or easel -simple yoga positions -simon says games-animal walk activities
