Brain Breaks for Kids

Give tired brains a break with these fun brain break exercises for kids.
We all know what it's like trying to get a young child to sit still, focus, and pay attention. It's a little like trying to solve a difficult math problem during a rock concert.
Did you know that kids are only able to focus for a certain period of time? Child development experts say that for young kids, a reasonable attention span is generally two to three minutes per year of their age.
So, for a six-year-old, you could expect 12 to 18 minutes of focus on a given task.
That's why brain breaks are essential to keeping kids motivated and learning. And we've got 90 right here for you.
These clever exercises help kids take a break and return to their work refreshed, refocused, and recharged.
These exercises are designed to get the oxygen moving and the laughter flowing, which results in improved motivation, cooperation, and learning.

These 90 cards are perfect for the classroom or home.

For charts and cards I recommend printing on thick stock paper, so it's easier to hang, not as flimsy, and can handle some wear ‘n’ tear.

For worksheets, activities and guides, I recommend printing and keeping securely in a three ring binder. Easy Peasy.

If you've purchased a handy chart or set of cards, this isn't necessary, but boy oh boy, it sure skyrockets things to the next level of fun. Do you have a laminator? (If you don't have one, I like this one). Laminate your resources (amazing). We all know kids are hard on things, so now you won't have to keep printing your chart and cards every time they get a little beat up.

Many of our charts also use Velcro stickers. And this is the icing on the cake. Attach one side of the Velcro sticker to the task card, and one side to the chart. Ensure that you don't mix up the sides. (i.e., the "hook" side should be on the chart, and the "furry" side on the cards.) Now you can move the cards around at your leisure. (Plus it's SUPER fun for kids).
