Jungle Themed Brain Breaks

Do you ever feel like your classroom, therapy room or home is a bit of a jungle?  I know I do!  Sometimes there is just too much built up energy that needs to get out.  How about getting out of that jungle by using fun movements that are all about the  jungle?  Jungle themed brain breaks are the perfect solution for getting out all of that energy and help the kids be ready to learn or listen again!

Fun ways to move with a jungle theme. My kids love these for a brain break or movement time!
