PT Idea of the Week: Gross Motor Bingo
[Source: The Inspired Treehouse]
My kids are always, always, always in the car. We run from practices to lessons to stores. Constantly in and out — constantly moving. When we hit the road for destinations that are further away, I am always looking for activities that will keep them from losing their minds from having to sit still for so long. The last road trip we took was an 11.5 hour drive from our home in Ohio to the southern part of North Carolina. It was a LONG. DRIVE. I decided it would be fun to come up with a game that would keep them occupied, give them something to look forward to, and keep their muscles limber! This gross motor activity can be done on short or long trips, in airports, at the train station, or in the middle of the big city. Be creative….you may have to think outside the box to figure out how to perform some of these movements depending on where you are!
