Here’s today’s gross motor activity: Paper Hands & Feet Twister!
Trace and cutout your child’s hands and feet on paper. Tape the paper hands and feet to the floor and have your child match their hands and feet to the paper. Re-position the paper hands and feet and repeat.You’ll need a few supplies for this one – paper, pencil, scissors, tape Here are some tips for this activity —
- You can even take this a step further and make several hands and several feet in different colors. And tape them to the floor in a grid and call out colors and hands or feet, just like Twister. (Make a spinner too! How fun!)
- With younger kids just cut one set of hands and feet and tape them to the floor, match them up, get up and move them around. One at a time.
- With older kids, you can use several hands and feet to have them follow and move throughout the house.
- Challenge older kids to create their own path that they can do. Can they really reach their feet that far apart? Try it and see!
- Extend the activity by inviting them to decorate their hands and feet by painting or drawing them!
