Teaching Kids to Cartwheel, Handspring, and More at Little Gym Summer Camps

Little Gym of Huntersville & Lake Norman
This post is in partnership with The Little Gym of Huntersville/LKN.

Do you or your kiddo ever wish they could learn one skill like cartwheeling? I’ve mentioned before I’m the Mombassador for The Little Gym Huntersville – Lake Norman and Miss A and Lil C have enjoyed each of their classes and have been in classes for several years. I love that the classes give my girls well-rounded skills in all areas of gymnastics from balance to teamwork, and am excited that this year Little Gym is focusing on specific skills.

This summer, Little Gym of Huntersville – Lake Norman is offering several summer sessions for your children {ages 6-12 years old} to grow in different areas of their gymnastics.

Little Gym Skill Thrill and Super Kids Small

Here they are:

Caribbean Cartwheels & Hawaiian Handstands June 24th & June 26th

Cartwheels and Handstands are the “gateway skills” that will lead the beginning/intermediate level gymnast toward learning Round-Offs, Back Handsprings, Front Handsprings , and more!  Because Cartwheels and Handstands are both “upside down” skills, they do wonders for building your child’s upper body and core strength, too!  Learning and perfecting Cartwheels and Handstands are a “must” for young gymnasts!  A “Caribbean/Hawaiian” side theme will add a fun tropical twist to the week!

Back Handspring Bonanza July 15th & July 17th

This Skill Thrill Camp is perfect for those kids who are ready to learn the Back Handspring!  It’s also great for those kids who have learned a Back Handspring – but are ready for more advanced Back Handspring variations, i.e. Round-Off, Back Handsprings; Round-Off Back Handspring-Back Handspring; and more!  A three hour “Back Handspring Bonanza”!  What could be more fun?

Front Handspring Festival July 29th & July 31st

This Skill Thrill Camp is perfect for those kids who have learned their handstand – and are ready to move to the next step – a “Front Handspring”!  This camp is also great for kids who can do this skill by themselves – but just need some repetition and practice to solidify their technique and confidence.  This Front Handspring Festival will also be an “Upper Body Fitness Festival” of sorts – as handstands and front handsprings are a great way to exercise the muscles of the arms, shoulders, chest and back!

Amazing Aerials August 12th & August 14th

Is it possible to do a “no-handed cartwheel”?  YES – this skill is called an “Aerial”!  While advanced-level gymnasts may be perfecting their aerial or learning to link their aerial to other skills, beginning and intermediate gymnasts will have the opportunity to grow their cartwheels as they journey through the many skill progressions to learn the intricacies of this exciting skill.  This Skill Thrill Camp may be just the thing for those kids who are “THAT CLOSE” to doing their aerial by themselves!  This week may just do the trick!

Party Planning Tips for The Little Gym

Little Gym of Huntersville & Lake Norman

CupcakeLil’ C’s birthday party planning has begun, and I’m thinking that some of you have probably started trying to figure out what your children’s birthday parties will look like this year. Will you have an intimate party at home? Do you like hosting the party at a fun kid’s spot and avoiding clean-up? Maybe you do both, {if so then wowzers!!}

In the B family, we’ve done a little bit of both, although often, a small party winds up being larger than expected. Much to my husband’s surprise though I’ve been able to get our guest lists down to around 8 children or so, which is good for me.

One of the most memorable birthday parties that we hosted was Miss A’s fourth birthday that we held at The Little Gym of Huntersville/Lake Norman. {Did you know that you don’t have to be a member or enrolled in classes at The Little Gym to host your party there???} Here are some posts from that party {so you can see why it was a blast.}

Miss A’s Birthday Bash

Little Gym Birthday Party

 

Instead of telling you the amazing reasons to book a party for your child at The Little Gym of Huntersville/Lake Norman, I figured I would give you tips for party planning at this very cool location.

Communicate – While most of the work is left to the amazing staff at The Little Gym, there are a few choices you will need to make when it comes to activities, cake, number of guests, and of course date selection. The more you communicate with TLG staff, the less stressful the party will be.

Party Food – This is one of the few aspects of the birthday party package that The Little Gym leaves in the hands of parents. Whether you want to order pizza or make your own, they are very flexible about what choice of food you’d like to offer your guests. It may be a good idea, {depending on what time your party is} to get a few small snacks for parents to munch on while the children enjoy the activities and then give children the main dish before cake.

To Theme or Not to Theme – With The Little Gym services, there’s no need to plan an elaborate theme for your party, after all, the main theme will be gymnastics and play. However, if you’re anything like me, you love a good party theme. For Miss A’s fourth birthday party we chose a rainbow theme, AND it went perfect with The Little Gym’s bright colors, THAT was a coincidence.

Room for Presents – Most parents who host a party at The Little Gym choose for their child to open presents in their own home. This allows more party time for everyone. When thinking about your child’s presents, as well as seating for everyone who’ll be traveling with you, that way you’re not struggling to make it all fit.

Plan Ahead – Just like any other venue, The Little Gym Birthday Party dates fill up quickly. If possible, try to plan your date 1 to 2 months prior depending on the time of year. If you’ve already told family and friends to save the date, call The Little Gym as soon as you have a date, better safe than sorry.

Are you ready to book your child’s birthday party at The Little Gym? At your convenience you can book your party online, email, or call The Little Gym to pick out your date, find out more about the services they provide, and get your party planning started.
