Christmas Gross Motor – Holiday Hop

1.  Lay holiday cards out on the floor with movement words written on the signs.  Have the same amount of cards on the floor as you do kids playing the game.  You can make your own cards on a sheet of paper or I have ready made holiday cards included in my Christmas Brain Breaks, Yoga, and Games.   Laminating the cards is a good idea, that way you can use them again and again.

Christmas Gross Motor Idea. The holiday hop is sure to be a hit with the kids, great for a brain break, and perfect for a holiday celebration!

2.  Have music available.  Movement and music go hand in hand!

3.  Turn on the music and let the kids hop or walk between the holiday cards- what ever works better in your setting.

4.  When the music stops have the kids perform the action written on their card.

5.  Start the music again and play resumes.

This can easily be modified to a musical chairs like game.  Have one less clover then students playing.  When the music stops the student who is not on the clover is out.
