What Will You Choose?

 

Movement / Play

A Fun way to be courageous is trying to balance in different ways.  If you need an adult to hold one hand at first that is okay. Then try to balance without holding on. Try again on a line of tape or a line drawn with chalk. Add Bean bags, soft objects, or books to balance on your head. Walk sideways. Have fun and keep trying.

Math / Science

Shape scavenger hunt.

Find as many shapes as you can around your yard or out on a walk. 

There are many ways to have a shape scavenger hunt.

  • Set up challenges. Find 3 squares, 5 circles, 2 triangles, etc.
  • Find three-dimensional shapes: spheres, cubes, pyramids, etc.
  • Bring a notebook and sketch each of the different shapes you find.
  • For younger kids, you can concentrate on just one shape. Have them find as many circles as they can.
