Everyday I try to do some gross motor activities with Adeline. We always crawl and hang from a monkey bar but here are a few others that we try to add in.
1. Stand up, Sit down - I stack a pile of our mats to create a stool. I hold an animal in the air and Adeline will stand up to grab the animal and sit down and throw it in a basket. This activity works her legs and core.
2. Scooter Pull - Adeline sits on the scooter, grabs an animal and I pull her across the room to throw her animal into the box.
3. Step, Step Throw - I create two steps with our mats. Adeline will choose an animal step across the steps and throw her animal in. Then back to get another animal.
