Happy Monday everyone! Did you see a fantastic football game this weekend? I am typically not a pro-football fan but, in Northeast Ohio, you HAVE to watch when the Browns play the Steelers. Trust me when I say that there was A LOT of whole body movement going on during that game. Up and down off of the couch, jumping up in the air, stomping feet, fist pumps… All of this while the kiddos were actually the smart ones outside playing!
We had some great shares on our Facebook Page last Monday to celebrate whole body movement. Today, we are rounding up 3 of our favorite gross motor activities from the week! As always, we hope that these inspire you to get up and get moving with your kids. Whether you are a stay at home mom, a babysitter, or a teacher in front of a classroom full of 25 kids, try to incorporate some whole body movement into your day today!
KITCHEN FLOOR CRAFTS played a game of gourd bowling this week! Take a peek and see what type of fall gourds she used and how she incorporated academic skills into this fabulous gross motor game!
Our friend Chanda from PINK OATMEAL shared a great list of ideas for a playroom that go way beyond the flashing, noisy toys that you can find in a typical toy store. See what a pediatric physical therapist would put in her dream playroom to inspire movement at any age!
In need of a super fun Halloween inspired movement game? Try this one from CHICKEN BABIES! Lair of the Spider Queen is the perfect whole body challenge for your child and I am pretty sure that you will have no problem motivating them to give it a try!
That’s it for this edition of MOVEMENT MONDAY! We hope that we have given you some inspiration to get up and moving with your children today. Skip, jump, hang upside down, creep, crawl, run, walk, slide….whatever makes you happy today, go do it! And then, stop by Facebook and share it with us!
HAVE A FABULOUS WEEK!
