The Get Movin’ Activity Deck for Kids: 48 Creative Movement Ideas for Little Bodies
A one-of-a-kind children’s movement and play deck, featuring 48 cards with practices for all ability levels, to celebrate the many ways our bodies can move.
This deck invites kids of all levels of ability to use imagination to get their bodies moving. Why was exercise so much more fun as a kid? Because all you had to do was incorporate PLAY! Activities here encourage children to enact fun scenarios like jumping over lava, zooming like a racecar driver, and standing like a flamingo.
The deck creates a new normal of movement diversity—acknowledging and celebrating different ways that bodies can move. Through fun images and simple directions, kids will try different movements and challenge themselves in different categories of movement: Breath like “Color-Breathing Dragon,” Stretch, Mobility and Stability like “Windmill Warm-Up,” Balance and Coordination like “The Penguin Waddle,” Strength and Endurance like “Mighty Warrior Kicks,” and Wacky Fun Wild Cards like “Dancing Machine.”
Modifications are offered for some activities to accommodate different abilities, alternate ways to practice, and ways to increase difficulty. Illustrations reflect differences to champion inclusion and exposure to children with a variety of differences like cultures, mobility, and physical presentations.

The Closet Door Calendar
Get your family organized with our easy, full-year-on-one-page Closet Door Calendar!
Are you tired of missed appointments, losing track of who is going where, forgetting birthdays and anniversaries?
Busy families don’t need:
Extra clutter on their walls
Bulky calendars with flapping pages
Losing everything when your child ‘cleans’ your dry-erase calendar
Tiny calendars with no room for writing
Relax – we can get everyone on the same page!
The Closet Door Calendar (patent-pending) is designed to hang on your closet door, either inside or out. This bright, easy-to-write-on calendar will show everyone’s plans in one glance for an entire year. Measuring 22 x 60 inches, it fits on a standard door for a streamlined look.
As a full-time teacher and mom, I invented this calendar over 20 years ago to keep my family on task. Friends saw my calendar and said, “That’s genius!” Now, I have retired from the classroom and started my own stationery company. You can buy this time-saving product for yourself!
Plus, no digital device can help children understand a calendar the way our large-scale paper calendar can! They will see how days, weeks, months, and a whole year take shape, and they can help cross off each day!
Let us make your year easier!
Calendars are printed to order on 22 x 60 inch white paper and shipped directly to you. Calendars are rolled into a clear plastic wrap and mailed in crush-proof packaging.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. We are a woman-owned small business working with our local printer to offer you this made-with-pride-in-the-USA product. Thank you!
