For over 25 years, we’ve used yo-yo tricks in our school performances. This bit of old-fashioned fun helps us be entertaining and unforgettable in the mind of a child as we share how “NED” learns to never give up, encourage others and do his best.
We also share that while yo-yoing is cool and simple, it’s not always easy. Everyone who learns to yo will make mistakes along the way. Students are told that if they try yo-yoing, it’s important to learn from mistakes and never give up. Teachers and parents often see children practice persistence and find great fulfillment in doing their personal best as they learn to yo with NED. Best of all, this “NED mindset” is infinitely transferable to school subjects!
