10 Fun Gross Motor Ideas

Over the last few years, I have been a contributor at Enchanted Homeschooling Mom. Jill has been a great person to work for or do projects with. In June she did this blog post about her health. It was a huge shock to me. Though I have never met Jill, I consider her one of my best friends. She was always there to help me out. I enjoyed writing a lot of fun gross motor ideas for kids to do!

If you are just looking for more materials for you class or at homeschool, she has a great members only program. It is one I have used a lot of her stuff with my girls.

Today is about helping her out! I’m round up some of the posts from her site.I thought I would show you some of my favorite gross motor posts that I wrote for her.
