Yes, that time of the year is almost upon us…winter weather season. While we may be dreading the snowy commutes to work and tuning up the snow blowers, there’s no reason to stay stuck inside every day when the snow flies. Beat cabin fever with these 10 gross motor activities and games that the whole family will enjoy:
1. Make snow angels: Lie back in the snow and move your legs apart and together as you swing your arms out in an arc along the ground until your hands are overhead. If your child struggles with this practice just the legs or just the arms until he/she can put it all together.
2. Shovel: Shoveling is great for heavy work for the sensory systems. Work together to shovel the sidewalk or patio, or shovel a path or maze through the yard.
