The Nutcracker Gross Motor Activity

Gross motor has always been one activity we do a lot of. We really enjoy doing it. It has always been a great stress relief from school or just when we have too many wiggles.

And we love doing books and gross motor. It is fun to read a book and then act out a part of it with the gross motor. It gets them into what we are reading and then they want to read again to do the movements again.

Today I have a fun post about The Nutcracker!

The Nutcracker Gross Motor Activity - with fun movements to do while reading the book - 3Dinosaurs.com #christmasactivities #grossmotor #3dinosaurs

I’m so excited to once again be apart of Rain Day Mums Christmas Advent. It is fun to have so many great activities together in one place. I loved doing posts every year.

This gross motor activity can be found in full on her site. We just love having fun ideas to do and try.

We have two picture books we love for the Nutcracker. They are The Nutcracker illustrated by Valeria Docampo and The Nutcracker by Susan Jeffers.

The movements we used are The Nutcracker, Mouse King, The Snow, The Sugarplum Fairy, and The Fairy dances.
