Center of the Universe

Twirl around with your child in the center of the universe, in this fun activity.


  • 5 to 10 minutes


  • Several scarves


Children love to spin around until they become dizzy and fall down. It makes them the center of their world as everything spins around them. Hold scarves out at shoulder level as you both twirl. Besides providing a rush of floating color, the scarf will also keep the arms high and enhance balance.


  • Put on fast music and then slow music to spin to.
  • Sew a bell on the end of the scarf.
  • Hold a scarf in each hand.
