Go on a nice bike ride.
Family and friends will love this favorite. All sit around in a circle as one person walks the outside of the circle gently tapping each head. When you hear “MOO’V” as your head is tapped, spring up and give chase. Tag the person before they reach your space and you win. Otherwise, it is your turn to tap heads.
Create your own 10 second dance routine. Have someone record it and post #dancemoov. Every few months we’ll pick one for Morgan and her friends to perform.
