‘Tis the season for “rainbows and butterflies”…are you singing along yet? I was channeling a little Adam Levine for you there.
Seriously though, spring is right around the corner and we are SOOOO sick of all of this cold and snow in Ohio that we are moving on to some spring activities!
Here is an awesome way to incorporate a little learning and some whole body movement into a fun scavenger hunt for kids!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
–Rainbow Scavenger Hunt Printable
WHAT TO DO:
Encourage your child to move through the scavenger hunt, completing each of the designated movements to get to each colored object.
-Roll like a log across the room to something red.
-Frog jump to something orange. Start in a squatting position, low to the ground and spring forward back into a squatting position.
-Hop on one foot to something yellow.
-Gallop like a horse to something green.
-Hop like a bunny to find something blue.
-Walk backwards to something violet.
At the end, line the objects up in the order of the colors of the rainbow!
HOW TO CHANGE IT UP:
-Repeat the scavenger hunt, finding multiple objects of each color! Line them up to make a full rainbow!
SKILL AREAS ADDRESSED: Cognitive skills, gross motor skills, motor control, balance, coordination, sensory integration
