Crop Crop Boogie: Dance Moves and Farming Fun for Active Kids

Get Your Groove On and Grow with Thornapple CSA

Alright, kids, it’s time to kick up your heels and get down on the farm! I’m here to introduce you to the wonderful world of community-supported agriculture (CSA) and the grooviest, most fun-filled way to get your hands dirty and your bodies moving. Welcome to Crop Crop Boogie – where dancing and farming collide in a celebration of healthy bodies, happy minds, and delicious, homegrown eats.

At Thornapple CSA, we believe that learning about where our food comes from should be an adventure, not a chore. That’s why we’ve cooked up a curriculum of crop-inspired dance moves, veggie-themed games, and farm-tastic activities that will have your little ones hopping, skipping, and jumping their way to a brand-new appreciation for all things green and growing.

Shake Your Sprouts and Boogie Down

Alright, let’s get this party started! The first order of business is to get those bodies moving. Thanks to the amazing work of the folks over at the GoNoodle program, we’ve got a whole repertoire of dance moves and musical routines that are sure to get your kids’ hearts pumping and their hips swinging.

Take the “Boogie Oogie Slide,” for example. This funky little number has your little ones sliding side-to-side, wiggling their hips, and clapping their hands in time to the beat. It’s the perfect way to warm up those muscles before we dive into some more intensive farm-themed choreography.

Or how about the “I’ve Got Moves” routine? This one’s all about showcasing your best dance steps, whether it’s the robot, the sprinkler, or the good ol’ electric slide. The best part? The lyrics encourage kids to try new moves and celebrate their creativity, so there’s no pressure to be the next Beyonc√©.

And let’s not forget the “Pack It Up” dance, which transforms the simple act of packing a lunch into a full-blown hoedown. With stomping feet, waving arms, and a catchy chorus, this one’s sure to get the whole family movin’ and groovin’.

Grow Your Own Groove

But dancing isn’t the only way to get in touch with your inner farmer at Thornapple CSA. We’ve also got a whole host of hands-on activities that’ll have your kids digging in the dirt, planting seeds, and embracing their inner green thumb.

Take the “I Am a Seed” routine, for example. This gentle, yoga-inspired flow encourages kids to embody the life cycle of a seed, starting as a curled-up ball and gradually unfurling into a towering sunflower. Not only does it promote physical activity, but it also helps little ones connect with the natural world around them.

Or how about the “Ven Conmigo” dance, which incorporates Spanish vocabulary and cultural elements into a lively, south-of-the-border-inspired routine? It’s a great way to introduce your kids to the diverse communities and global perspectives that make up the world of sustainable agriculture.

And let’s not forget the “Yebo, Let’s Go” chant, which gets the whole crew pumped up and ready to tackle their gardening tasks with enthusiasm and team spirit. Whether it’s weeding the beds, watering the crops, or harvesting the veggies, this high-energy call-and-response will have everyone working together like a well-oiled machine.

Groove into Greatness

But the fun doesn’t stop there, my friends. At Thornapple CSA, we’re all about incorporating movement, music, and creativity into every aspect of our programming. From veggie-themed dance parties to farm-inspired obstacle courses, there’s no limit to the ways we can get your kids up, active, and engaged with the world of sustainable agriculture.

Take the “Water” routine, for example. This calming, meditative flow not only gets the body moving, but it also helps kids develop a deeper appreciation for the vital role that water plays in the growth and nourishment of our crops. And with soothing melodies and serene, nature-inspired imagery, it’s the perfect way to ground and center the mind before diving into a hands-on gardening session.

Or how about the “Supposed to Polka,” which transforms the traditional polka step into a lively, laugh-inducing romp through the fields? With silly lyrics, playful movements, and plenty of opportunities for improvisation, this one’s sure to have your little ones giggling and grooving their way through their chores.

And let’s not forget the “All 4 Kids Chant,” which celebrates the diversity, creativity, and boundless energy of the next generation of farmers and food advocates. With its infectious rhythm and empowering message, this call-and-response number is the perfect way to rally the troops and remind everyone that together, we can grow a brighter, healthier future.
