Fun and Creative Gymnastics Games at Home for Kids: Keeping Your Child Excited About Gymnastics!

These ideas are also great games for any gymnastics themed party you might be throwing!


At Wickers Gymnastics Club in Lancing, UK, we understand the importance of keeping kids engaged and excited about gymnastics. We have put together some fun and creative gymnastics games that can be played at home. These games will help your child improve their skills while having fun at the same time!


Game 1: Simon Says Gymnastics


This classic game can be adapted for gymnastics by incorporating different skills such as cartwheels, handstands, and bridges. The leader (or "Simon") calls out different skills, and the players must perform them correctly. The catch is that the leader can trick players by calling out a skill without saying "Simon Says," and anyone who performs the skill is out.


Game 2: Obstacle Course


Create an obstacle course using items around the house such as chairs, pillows, and blankets. The course should include gymnastics skills such as forward rolls, cartwheels, and jumps. Time your child as they complete the course, and challenge them to beat their best time.



Game 3: Balloon Volleyball


This game is a fun way to work on hand-eye coordination and balance. Blow up a balloon and use a string or a piece of tape to create a "net" across a doorway. Have your child stand on one side of the net and use their hands to hit the balloon back and forth over the net.


Game 4: Gymnastics Bingo


Create a bingo card with different gymnastics skills such as forwards roll, handstands, backbends, and (for the more flexible!) splits. Call out the skills, and your child must perform them correctly to mark them off on their card. The first person to get a full row or column wins.


Game 5: Mirror Gymnastics


This game is a fun way to work on coordination and balance. Have your child stand facing a partner or a mirror and take turns leading different gymnastics skills. The other person must mirror the movements exactly. This game can be played with simple skills such as balancing on one foot or more complex skills such as cartwheels and back handsprings.


These fun and creative gymnastics games can be played at home with little to no equipment and will help your child improve their skills while having fun at the same time. At Wickers we understand the importance of keeping kids engaged and excited about gymnastics. We hope that these games will provide some inspiration for families to stay active and have fun at home. Make sure to stay safe!
