Many teachers, therapists and parents love to use themes when working with their kids. A space theme is just one of several great motor planning theme ideas. I’m excited to share with you several different ideas for space themed gross motor and fine motor activities in today’s blog post.
Space Themed Gross Motor Activities
Start off your space themed gross motor activities with space themed yoga! Your kids will love to move their bodies like different people, places, and objects in space.
Looking for fast, fun, and efficient ways to make movement fun while sticking with a space theme? You need to try out space themed brain break cards. All of these moves are designed to be done in a short amount of time, with very little space needed.
Grab this FREE space walk game. This has both a digital and printable option. Get it in the Pink Oatmeal freebie library!
How about cleaning up asteroids? This game is done like the video below. Make asteroids by crumpling up a ball of tin foil and sweep or use a pool noodle to get them into a square space on the floor.
Digital Space Gross Motor
Looking to go digital? The space gross motor game is for you! Pick your favorite space object and move like that object. This can be played on a computer, tablet, or interactive white board. An excellent option for distance learning or in person work!
