3 Activities from More Quick Games (BJ02)

by William C. Janiak, MS, RMT, Consultant and Activity Specialist

 

1.  BUTTON RELAY

Place two button shirts on two different chairs.  Select two teams.  At the “go” signal, the first member of each team, runs to the chair, unbuttons the button, and heads back to their line.  This continues until the last member of the team buttons up the shirt to end the relay race. 

 

2.  MOVING WORDS:

To reinforce color recognition, develop thinking skills, and promote fitness, the children are spread around the room and standing.  The teacher announces movement directions from the items they have on such as clothing, eyeglasses, blond hair followed by examples such as “If you have glasses on, hop on one foot” or “If you are not wearing a dress, shake your hands.”

3.  MUSICAL SHAPES:

Let the children cut out the middle of paper plates so they look like rings.  The children write their names on them.  Take a chair and turn them upside down.  The children form a circle around the chair.  At the signal “go,” the children fling their paper plate ring over one of the chair legs.  If the child misses the leg, they get their name, go back to the circle, and fling it until it goes on the leg. When it is over, the first name on the bottom of each leg is the winner.
