“Without talking, you have 5 seconds to find a partner and sit behind them, go (1,2,3,4,5)”
“If you are sitting in the back, ask your partner if you can give them a massage.”
“Remember your friend is trusting you to be kind and respectful of their body so make good choices. Let’s do a winter inspired massage.”
Finish with an affirmation - Have the student giving the massage place their hands on their friend’s shoulders and say “You are brilliant” or pick another affirmation: You are….kind, relaxed, a star, great, clever, strong.
Have the front child say thank you (Kia Ora) and have them swap places.
* It is great to have the students check in afterwards.
