Row Your Boat

Here’s a simple game that requires no equipment—but you will need an even number of participants—children and adults.
Everybody get a partner and sit on the floor facing each other with legs straight out in front.
Put the soles of your feet together, if you can. If you can’t (such as with a small child/adult combination) put the smaller person’s legs on the inside of the larger person’s.
Grasp hands and hold on tight. Now, as one person leans back, the other leans forward and vice versa. Do this in time while singing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."
The first time sing and “row” at a slow, easy pace. Repeat a second time, singing and rowing faster. Repeat a third time, singing and rowing as fast as you can.
This activity is very good for strengthening stomach muscles for children as well as adults. Best of all, it’s fun for everybody!
