Because gymnasts are always striving to be better and do more, what has already been accomplished is sometimes overlooked. The Jar of Rock Solid Tricks is a tangible way for gymnasts to track improvement and acknowledge achievement! It’s also cute decor for your child’s room.
Step 1: Choose a see-through container.
Step 2: Decorate it anyway you want. Find the chalkboard tag I used from MyAlteredState here.
Step 3: Go on a rock hunt or buy a bag at your local craft store.
Step 4: When your gymnast masters a new skill, write it on a rock and add it to the jar.
Step 5: Watch your child’s pile of rocks and confidence grow.
If your gymnast is older, they can pre-write skills they hope to acquire on the rocks. Once they have achieved the desired trick, add it to the jar!
