Thanks to Teach Preschool’s post about the Olympic Blog Hop, I discovered a bunch of great Olympics-inspired movement posts for the little ones and had to share!
Move Like a Gymnast from Creative Family Fun – these activities might be fun to incorporate into a summer camp next year.
Pom Pom Games – These pom poms look fairly easy to make and would be a fun alternative to bean bags in the classroom.
Movement Games for Young Children – a few ideas and a great list of guidelines for creating your own movement game.
Ring-Based Movement Ideas – You could easily translate these ideas to non-Olympic rings by using some hoola hoops or rubber circles.
Olympic Family Fitness from The Iowa Farmer’s Wife – a 15-minute fitness lesson for a 3-year old including warm-up, activity and cool down.
Cute London Bus Prop Idea – ok, so this one has nothing to do with movement, but the London bus they made from a cardboard box would be a cute prop!
Have you been watching the Olympics? Will any Olympic inspired movement be making its way into your classrooms this year?
