Bodily-Kinesthetic Gift-Boosting Activities

Dancers, athletes, sculptors, actors, chefs, jugglers, and carpenters put more than their hearts into their work. They put their hands into it, or their legs; their eyes or their noses. They use their bodies, not just their minds.

Whether you're a coach or a couch potato, here's how you can encourage your kids to shake, rattle, and roll.

Choose your child's age group to get great activities.
Grades K-2
Grades 3-5
Grades 6-8

Linguistic Logical-Mathematical Intrapersonal Interpersonal
Bodily-Kinesthetic Musical Naturalistic Spatial
