Keep it Moving...
Maze Game. Create a checkerboard pattern on the floor — either with pillows, washi tape or paper — with a start corner square and opposite exit corner square. Draw a hidden pattern on paper that the kids must follow in order to get through the maze. Have the kids take turns moving through the maze — moving left, right, forward or back without skipping over squares. If they pick the wrong square, have them go back to the beginning and try again.
Land, Sea, Air. This simple game requires listening and a line on the ground. Pick a spot with a natural line, such as a tile, or place a small piece of tape on the floor. Identify behind the line as land, in front of the line as sea and jumping directly up as air. Have the kids follow your directions. Say the commands land, sea and air in no particular order. If the kids make a mistake have them do three jumping jacks and try again.
