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.
I know that some times pulling up the site and looking is not always easy. But this is a great way to keep activity with little to no prep for kids.
You can get kids moving and loving gross motor with the free printable gross motor 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.
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 do these activities with adult supervision. You should never let your kids do these by themselves. I encourage you to do them WITH your kids. Yes with them! It will show them how to do it and get you some fitness as well.
Each of the pages has one type of gross motor activity. You can see that they are simple and easy to read on the page. Plus a lot of these don’t require you to use anything!
I like to put all the pages in a sheet protector. This allows me to put them on a clipboard and use them over and over. I love that I can check off the activities that we have done with a dry erase marker. Plus makes it really easy to store.
