Kids learn best through play and movement, so let's play a game!
🧟 ZOMBIE - hide!
🌋 LAVA - the ground is lava, get on something!
🌪️ HURRICANE - huddle with you!
Extra challenge: see if your child can come up with their own ideas that can be included in the game and play it all together!!
(for example: DRAGON - a fire breathing dragon will fly by in 10 seconds, so you have to get under something or use something as a shield!)
While playing this game, your child is working their:
- Executive Functioning Skills (working memory, planning, task initiation)
- Spatial Awareness (where things are in relation to themselves)
- Cognitive Flexibility (the brain's ability to adapt to new, changing, or unplanned events)
- Gross Motor Skills (energy, flexibility, and body awareness)
