One of my favorite thing to do is playing Shipwreck, or not-touching the floor, or not-touching the ground, as I sometimes call it also.
Shipwreck is fun, I think, it’s great for balance and also for body awareness.
When I play the shipwreck I use things that are around me and pretend that I jump between the countries that are located around the Arctic Ocean.
I play that I jump between Norway, Russia, Canada, Greenland and Alaska. That’s wouldn’t be possible to do since the countries are so far apart, but one can always pretend :o)
Outside, I usually try to find a bunch of rocks or stumps to move between and not touching the ground.
Indoors, I use mats and I put a few of my shirts and skirts on the floor, and then I play no-touch the floor – and that are fun exercises for kids like you :o)
Shipwreck is also great to play here on board the pirate boat when we are out on long trips like this.
As you and all other kids know – the human body is designed to move and it’s not always so easy to move on board a pirate boat, but this game is fun and works great.
If you want to play the shipwreck, look for what’s around you, pillows, rugs, clothes, towels maybe?
What do you think would be great to use to play Shipwreck outdoors?
In the pictures you see one of my favorite places to play Shipwreck at, I played it there before we took off, we’re on our way to Sweden now.
Right now here on board the pirate boat Im trying to move around without touching the floor. A great and fun way to move I think.
If you want to. Write and tell me about the things you normally use to play Shipwreck, or not-touching the floor. Or send me a drawing (tell someone to take a picture of your drawing and email it to me).

PS: Next time you will hear from me I will have arrived in Sweden (there is no internet at sea).
