Spinning and Prancing Christmas Themed Gross Motor Dice

As we enter the holiday season, it gets colder outside, and my girls just love to be moving around. Every year we do different types of gross motor activities. I love to change up what we do.

These dice are an easy way to let them get some gross motor in when they need to get their wiggles out. After how much fun we had with the dinosaur version I thought Christmas ones would be fun.

I do love to change up our gross motor all the time. We are always doing some kind of gross motor activity and my girls love it. Many years ago I got my degree in Physical education and I love coming up with new ideas to use it!

My girls have loved the different dice I have made and this is the newest addition to the growing gross motor activities.

There are two dice in this set. There is one for the Christmas movements. The other die is for the speed you do the movements. I always start by reviewing the movements before we make any changes or add the speed dice.

The cube version of the dice has instructions on them. The version you can make just has the Christmas Themed name. I like the cube dice because they last a little longer than the one you make. My girls can be crazy rolling the dice.

Christmas Movements

Santa: You climb out of the Chimney. You move your arms and legs like you are climbing a ladder.

Nutcracker: You march in place or walking. You can do high or low knees to mix it up.

Christmas Tree: You spin around in place. This one can be fun when you go slow and fast.

Reindeer: You Prance, skip or leap around the room.

Gingerbread: You run around the room or in place. How fast is your gingerbread man?

Present: You jump from a crouched position on the floor. We loved how creative you had to be with slow on the jump.

After you have all the movements add changes to it by adding the speed die! This makes it fun because you might roll Santa twice but the speed might be different. You climb one time fast and the next slow. It is fun to mix things up! After you finish you can keep the dice around all season and pull them out to do with your kids or class.
