Hoop, stuffed animals, and an imagination.
Bring out hula
hoops and let the kids train their animals to go through the hoops
Tight rope walker
Submitted by: Cheryl S.
Place a rope on the floor. Show the
kids how to walk on the "tight rope" heal toe heal toe one foot
in front of the other. Show them how to use their arms to balance.
Toddlers walk holding your hand, they do best to shuffle their feet. Take
turns. Clap for them when they are done!
Give the children soft colorful beanbags, or lightweight soft plastic
balls (like ball pit balls). Have them try to juggle and toss the balls or
the bean bags..
Have the children pretend to be ponies. They can prance and gallop around
a circle to slow and faster music.
Lions and Tigers added
The children can pretend to be lions and tigers. They can jump
through large hula hoops and roar like tigers. I suggest you do this is a
soft area with lot of blankets or mats incase a child decides to throw themselves
through the hoop.
