I share this now as a sort of tribute to the man Theodor Seuss Geisel
born March 1904 !
Its something everyone can do at home with their kids of all ages.
All you need to do it get
*ONE PACK OF INDEX CARDS
*THREE DIFFERENT COLOR SHARPIES
*A BUNCH OF ODDS AND ENDS AROUND YOUR HOUSE.
Here is how you play and what you do,
On the index cards on one side you are going to write the number
1 in one color sharpie on 10 index cards
2 in a different color sharpie on another 10 index cards
3 in the third color on another 10 index cards
The reason you are writing in three different colors is in case all the children
playing can not read the numbers you can say pick up one of each color.
On the other side of all the 1 index cards you are going to write an action:
WALK TO ELEVATOR/DOWNSTAIRS
ON TIPPY TOES
ON LEFT FOOT HOP
ON RIGHT FOOT
The actions you can see your kids enjoying !
On the other side of all the 2 index cards you are going to write
all the object you have collected from your house and are ready to play with
FRUIT ROLL UP
and on the other side of the 3 index cards you are going to write all the places on
your body you can hold something
UNDER YOUR RIGHT ARM
BETWEEN YOUR KNEES
UNDER YOUR LEFT ARM
ON YOUR HEAD
IN YOUR SOCK
IN MY SHIRT
BETWEEN YOUR ELBOWS
IN YOUR MOUTH
ON YOUR PALMS FACING UP
BETWEEN TWO FINGERS
Every child takes a turn picking up one card from each pile
so they have three cards.
They might read something like this:
JUMP with the SPOON under your arm.
You NEED want to have a place where they do this action. A starting point
and an ending point.
I always like to make them far apart, from where you are playing the game
to the furthest point possible and back !
This is a great game to play this weekend with your kids ! Have fun !
