I found a wonderful, locomotor skills game via No Time For Flashcards– “Musical Hearts: Gross Motor Games for Kids”. Enjoy this idea, but dig deeper into the site for even more fantastic ideas and resources!
The premise of this game lies in creating gross motor skills on “hearts”– the instructors plays music, and when the music stops, the student must find a “heart” and demonstrate the given instruction.
You can read detailed instructions here.
What’s even better? You can create a game for every season!
March: 4- Leaf Clovers
April: Bunnies or Easter Eggs
July: Beach Pails or Beach Balls
August: Flip-Flops or Apples
September: School Buses
December: Trees or Bells
You can also customize the game to match your summer camp themes.
