Be a Bat or a Bear or . . .

It can be hard to get moving indoors. One of our favorite options is to move around in special ways. Today we chose to move around like various animals. We scampered like bears, crawled like mice and flew like bats. Our house has a loop of rooms that make a circle. We used this space so we were able to use big movements. ​


We even added a song to our efforts. 

I’m a bat, 

I’m at bat, 

I’m a bat, bat, bat

I’m a bat, 

I’m at bat, 

I’m a bat, bat, bat

I’m a bat, 

I’m at bat, 

I’m a bat, bat, bat

I’m a  baaaaaat and I fly like that!

Even when you are stuck inside it is important to work large muscle groups for gross motor development. What is your favorite way to get moving inside?
