Spring Gross Motor Game – Puddle Jumping
[Source: Pink Oatmeal]
I love Spring! Living in Minnesota, the winters are long, and nothing is better than seeing that white stuff disappear! I don’t even mind the muddy mess or puddles that come with the melting snow. It’s actually a lot of fun. I’ve been letting my son go crazy playing in them. It’s resulted in several clothes changes, but one happy kid. We’re planning on playing a puddle jumping gross motor game to get the kids moving this Spring. This game is fun for the classroom or at home.
This game is similar to the St. Patrick’s Day Clover Hop that I played in March. It was a success so I thought we’d keep the fun coming with puddles. Now as great as it would be to jump in real puddles, we can’t always do that. If you can, go for it! Instead I created puddles for the kids to jump on. Let’s Play!
