Egg in the Sand

Children lie on their back and bring head and legs into a ball. Holding that position, they roll side to side.  This strengthens the core.  Can also be used as an activity motivator. Pretend the egg fell out of the nest and needs to be put back in the nest- all the way across the mat.
