Move This World: Ballooning
When Team Umizoomi faces a challenge, Milli, her brother Geo, and their friendly robot named Bot leap into action to solve it. When Blue faces a challenge, she looks for clues to solve it!
What do YOU do when you face a big challenge?
One way you can focus is to become great at deep breathing!
Our friends at Move This World are sharing a fun and handy strategy called Balooning that grown-ups and children can practice and use breathe deeply and calm their minds and bodies — so they can focus!
- Let's watch the Move This World video and practice Ballooning. Let's sit up or stand up straight. Let's pretend we're holding a balloon in both hands with our fingers touching and our elbows relaxed.
- As we breathe IN, let's pull our hands apart as if our balloon is expanding.
- As we breathe OUT, let's empty our lungs and then our stomach and bring our hands back together.
- Let's blow up our balloons together three times. How do we feel?
