- Anytime a Character Sings
High Knees (or run in place) – Perform high knees, or run in place until the character stops singing! And sing along, if you can…
- Anytime Two Characters Have an Argument
Boxers – Perform boxers until the argument ends! Starting with feet hip-width apart and knees bent, keep elbows in and extend one arm forward and the other back, as if you’re throwing punches!
- Every Time There Is Mention of Mistletoe OR Characters Kiss
10 Jumping Jacks – What kind of holiday movie is it if there is no love? Perform 10 jumping jacks!
- Somebody Makes a Wish
10 crunches – Every time somebody makes a wish, perform 10 crunches! Lie on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place hands behind head. Tilt chin slightly. Gently pull your abdominals inward, curling up and forward so that the head, neck and shoulder blades lift off the floor.
- Every Time The Grumpy Character Says Something Sarcastic or Cynical
The Pilates “100” – 20 pumps. There is no such thing as a holiday movie that doesn’t have a grumpy character. Every time this character says something “scroogey”, perform the pilates “100” and curse him or her under your breath. Lie on your back with your knees bent, then lift your feet off the floor into table top position. Point your toes, and extend your legs straight and forward. With your arms straight out by your side, begin pumping your arms up and down.
- Every Time Somebody References “Snow”
10 squats – Anytime a character says the word snow, OR anytime you see snow, perform 10 squats. Stand with hands on the back of your head and your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower your body until thighs are parallel to the floor.
- Every Time There Is a Flashback Sequence
Arm Circles and Calf Raises – perform arm circles and calf raises until the flashback sequence ends.
- Reindeer are Mentioned
20 Butt Kicks – Don’t overthink it. Just run in place and kick your butt every time reindeer are mentioned, or a reindeer appears!
- Anytime Someone Is Wearing an Ugly Sweater
50 Arm Circles – Anytime you see an outrageously grotesque holiday sweater, say “ew” out loud a few times and then perform 50 arm circles.
REST! Grab some water, or perform a plank or wall sit if you’re trying to burn off some of those delicious cookies that you couldn’t resist.
