At a time when we should have been doing something else. Someone presented us with a pile of leaves.
How can you say no to that? This was great gross motor practice without me doing a thing!
Playing in the leaves can be some of the following gross motor:
- running in the leaves
- throwing the leaves
- picking up the leaves
- bending up and down
- rolling in the leaves
- raking leaves
- running with hands out front holding leaves
- jumping over the leaves
- jumping in the leaves
- leave angles
Plus add in sensory of just playing in the leaves.
Do you plan on playing in leaves this year? Do you kids even like playing in leaves?
