Nala and Simba are reunited in the jungle. Can you move to your own jungle beat?

How to play…

1

Start playing some music or put the radio on.

2

Take 2 sideways steps right and tap the toes of your left foot on the ground in time with the music. Then do the same to the left.

3

Now add some arm moves! As you step each way, wave your arms side to side above your head!

4

Finally, after your 2 steps in each direction, do a special dance move. Try a star jump, dabbing, flossing or swivelling your hips like you have a hula hoop. It can be anything – make the most of your agility!

5

See if you can keep dancing for 10 minutes.
