    Gymnastics Day Will Teach Children Lifelong Skills

     

    (Dover, NH/ April 24, 2017) – The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire will be hosting a Gymnastics Day from 11am-3pm on Saturday, April 29. Amanda and Lori from Atlantic Gymnastics are the day’s special guests.

     

    Megan, the Director of Atlantic Gymnastics in Dover says of the importance of children learning gymnastics, “Kids learn important body movements like balance, strength, and coordination. They also learn lifelong skills like discipline, confidence, responsibility, the ability to work with others, and taking correction.”

     

    The activities for Gymnastics Day will be a small version of the classes Amanda and Lori teach at Atlantic Gymnastics. They will be bringing a balance beam and bosu ball to teach participants of all ages the importance of balance and body movement. They will also be talking about some of their upcoming summer programs. 

     

    This day full of physical challenges is a good reminder for families to sign up for the upcoming May 6th Kid-venture Course. The KidVenture Course is a series of exhibit-themed challenges for children ages 1 – 12. From crab walking under the “sea” and crawling through caterpillar tunnels, to transporting dino eggs to their nest and crossing the (pretend) Cocheco River, this special event isn't your traditional kid's Fun Run. To learn more about the Kid-venture Course or to sign up visit www.childrens-museum.org/things-to-do/events/5k-road-race-fun-run.

     

    Gymnastics Day marks the end of a week full of special NH April Vacation programs planned at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire in Dover. To learn more about the museum and its programs, visit www.childrens-museum.org or call 603-742-2002.
