Everybody Dance Now! 3 Fun Ways to Sprinkle a Little Dance Into Your Dayfeatured


It’s time for Five Minute Friday again–the time each week that blogging friends from all over get together and write for five minutes flat on a one-word prompt. This week’s writing prompt is the word DANCE.  To read more fun and encouraging posts, visit the link-up at Kate’s place. Here we go in 3…2…1…

Everybody Dance Now

Everybody dance now! Graceful mama, dancing is a great way to add life to your home. Kids are born with a love for dancing.  (Turn on some music and watch any toddler just begin to go for it!)  When you’re at home with your kids, whether you are there all day with them or you have a few hours to enjoy together after work, you can be intentional about making dancing a part of your family fun.  It will bring joy to your life and your kids, and it’s even a good way to combat the grumpies.

Here are three fun ways to sprinkle a little dance into your day:

  1. Play music that’s fun to dance to! Listen to all different kinds of music: Disney songs, (appropriate) techno and rap music, bluegrass, classical (my girls start doing ballet immediately), and anything else that gets you moving.
  2. Find your dancing feet, mama! Let your kids see you dancing when the music comes on. You’ll enjoy it and they will, too!
  3. Take dancing breaks throughout the day!  A few times a day, stop what you’re doing and dance for a minute. It doesn’t have to take a long time to add some joy and fun into your day.

You can all dance together–mama, kids, daddy, and Barbies {yep…Barbies}. It’s lots of fun and good exercise, too! So get your body moving and do some dancing. In the living room, in the kitchen, and down the hallway–get up and dance!

Here’s a good dancing song for you! This one dates back about 15 years, but I still love to play it–and dance to it.
