There are times we are stuck inside and can’t get out and it drives my girls up the wall! When I was picking out ideas for the medieval week my asked for a gross motor dice.
They have been LOVING having the different themed dice. So we have a great Medieval Gross Motor Dice today! Plus this makes such an easy way to get the wiggles out while having tons of fun.
This is day 4 of the 7 Days of Medieval & Fairy Tale Printables.
The medieval themed gross motor dice have two different sets of dice to play with. My girls just love the cube dice because they can switch out the cards.
Each dice set has their own fun gross motor activities, but with the cube dice you can mix them up! The cube dice have the movement on them and the folding dice just have the name.
I have found that the cube dice tend to last longer and my girls just love throwing the dice around.
Medieval Gross Motor Dice Movements
Here is a look at all 12 movements. I always review the movements first before we do the dice. This allows them and me to make sure we know what they are doing. I also check to make sure they have space around each other for the movements. If space is an issue they might do a movement one at a time.
Castle: You pretend to build a castle. You have them stack brings on top of each other.
Knight: You pretend to swing a sword around in different directions. The main goal is to have the arms cross the body.
Princess: You twirl around in a circle. You can do this any way that you move the body around in a spinning motion.
Queen: You do a fun curtsy. You could have them do small curtsy or big curtsy.
Flag: You wave your arms around like you are a flag in the wind.
Horse: You gallop around the room like a horse. This gets kids moving and having fun.
Frog Prince: You do a fun frog jump. We did movements forward and how high they could go.
Fairy: You dance a fun and silly as you want.
Mermaid: You lay on your stomach and kick your legs together like you have fins.
Pegasus: You flap your arms like they are wings.
Dragon (blue): You stomp like a dragon. You make as much noise as you can stomping.
Dragon (red): You swish your bottom like you have a tail to move.
We are always changing up how we do the activities. My girls love adding the extra dice for how many times to do a movement or how long to hold a movement. You can find the number dice here.
It is so easy for them to mix up the cards that they love changing them up often. Plus you can mix up with any of the other themed gross motor dice as well! You might add space or dinosaur in with it.
