Hey there everyone! How was your weekend? We celebrated an 8th birthday with a little bit of roller skating, bungie jumping, and laser tag at a local indoor playground. It was a blast!
We are ready to round up our favorite gross motor activities that were shared on our Facebook page last week. Did you remember to share yours? If not, there is always today! Head on over there as soon as you are finished reading this round-up and post your gross motor activities, games, or ideas!
Chanda from Pink Oatmeal thought BIG when she used a recycled box to make a homemade shape sorter for her son. He is all about walking and the standard, small, on-the-floor sorter just wasn’t going to cut it! Chanda is a fellow PT and knows how to turn a piece of trash into the perfect child development opportunity!
Christy from Thriving STEM posted her fantastic movement activity on our Facebook wall last Monday with these words from her son — “Mom, I learn better when I am moving”! He is so right! Together, they created a sight word movement activity! Click through to see what they did!
Finally, Colleen from Raising Lifelong Learners shared a post about bats that included a fun game of Sonar Hide and Seek! Kids will love all of the bat facts and this creative game of bat vs. mosquitoes!! Check it out!!
Now it is your turn….click here and share your whole body movement activities with our readers. You may be featured in the round-up next week!
HAVE A MARVELOUS MONDAY!
