I know that when I’m at a loss for a movement idea for my girls I’m always looking at my 30 Days of Moving with Kids. It for years was my got to thing.
I realized that I needed something my girls could use that was much easier for them to use on their own. Or for me to keep track of ideas that we have done.
I took the list of ideas added a few more and made the Gross Motor Printable List.
A fact some might not know is I went to school for Physical Education. Years later I’m not teaching, but still using those skills I learned with my girls. I have writing several gross motor posts over the past year and half. I can’t believe how fast that time has gone by.
These printables are just suggestions. It is taking the list on the blog post and just making it a printable. I use these ideas all the time. Always so these activities with adult supervision. You should never let your kids do these by themselves. I encourage to you do to them WITH you kids. Yes with them! It will show them how to do it and get you some fitness as well.
I printed mine off 4 per page to make them smaller. (Go to this post to learn how to print more than one page at a time.) Then I laminated them on card stock to make them stronger. You can punch a hole on the corner and put them in a ring to keep them all in one place.
