Let’s move like different animals! Ask your child, “Which animal do you want to move like first?”
You might hop like bunnies, stomp like dinosaurs, or even slither like snakes. What movements can your child recall?
Continue trying different animal movements. Which did your child like best? Which movements were harder?
MAKE IT EASIER:
Start with movements you already know your child can do in order to build their confidence. Let them lead the way in deciding what movements to try next.
EXTEND THE LEARNING:
Take turns playing “follow the leader” and mimic each other’s movements. Or, play charades and try to guess which animals you are!
