The Bunny Hop: Have some fun with your children hopping around the room or outside. Or you can draw hop scotch squares onto the ground outside with chalk and practice hopping and counting at the same time. Afterwards let your children color the sidewalk and driveway with the colored chalk.
Tunnels, such as those that can be used indoors or outdoors are perfect for this week’s gross motor activity. Hide and crawl through the tunnels like rabbits do. Don’t have the vinyl or plastic tunnel at your house of childcare; use your imagination and a tunneled slide as an alternative.
Baby duck/chick flap: Flap arms and quack like a duck, or cheep like a chick while walking around outside or inside.
