Today’s challenge: Tissue Dance! It is more like a balancing act with music and less of a dance, but so much fun! Grab a tissue and place it on your head. When the music starts, try dancing and moving to the music without letting the tissue fall. If the tissue falls, try to catch it before it touches the ground and continue dancing!
Challenge your family to dance along, and see who can be the last one to balance a tissue on their head while moving to the music!
