Movement Activities for Kids
Spring Movement Activities
The best part about moving your body is that it doesn’t have to be anything elaborate. While a run around the backyard might be great, sometimes it’s not an option. Gross motor activities are just what toddlers and preschoolers need to break up learning activities, or even a day spent inside.
Plus, squeezing in something silly with your kids is always a great thing to do.
Spring Gross Motor Activities
Why not challenge them to waddle like a duck when they go to the kitchen to get their snack for the day? Or hop like a frog as they’re heading to their room?
You can even break up some of the spring learning activities by having them scurry like a spider around the living room.
As long as they’re having fun and moving their body, they’re going to be more than willing to participate in all of these Spring movement activities.
