Children love to play games, imitate, participate with others, and just have a good time. These games have the goals needed for the teacher to motivate the children to use those muscles and exercise their bodies into a fun-based educational learning way through these designed games for use both outdoors and indoors. Here are 3 fun games:
Procedure: Throw the balloon up in the air. The child must keep the balloon up in the air and laugh continuously. If the balloon hits the ground, the laughter stops!
Variation: Can use many children in groups with many balloons as everyone in the group laughs until the balloon hits the ground for the group.
Clap and Sing Nursery Rhymes:
Procedure: Let the children clap their hands and sing some of the choruses from the nursery rhymes that they know like Mary Had A Little Lamb, Jack and Jill, and add other songs like Bingo, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, etc.
Variation: Rhythms are most important in the children and so have the children clap out the rhythm of the song without singing any of the words.
Procedure: Place several feathers in a given area. The children hunt for them and when a child finds a feather, the child must blow the feather in the air until it reaches the leader. The child scores a point for each feather that is blown to the leader.
Variation: Divide the group into small teams and when the feather is found, the group blows the feather into a container for points. If there are bi feathers, try toilet tissue.
