Face Movement Dancing Activity for Kids

Rubber-Neck Dance


While facing your child, identify all the parts of the face and neck that can move: wiggle your nose, raise your eyebrows, stretch your neck, and stick out your tongue. Now sit in front of a mirror with some rhythmic music on and suggest how a face can dance by moving features in time with the music. Experiment with repeated facial expressions; from smile to frown in rhythm. Move your head from side to side stretching and turning the neck. Even hair can dance with a little help from little fingers.
