One of my absolute favorite themes that we focus on during the school year in preschool is the farm! My preschoolers love animals of all kinds, but all the songs, sensory activities, adorable crafts, and fun books make learning about a farm and the animals that live there such an engaging topic. There are lots of farm printable activities out there, but I thought adding in movement to our gross motor farm game was a fun twist on a printable activity!
Gross Motor Farm Game
This gross motor movement game includes 12 different cards with a farm themed image and an activity to get kids moving!
Print the set below on cardstock, cut each card out, and get ready to move and play! Toddlers, preschoolers, and even kindergarteners will love being active while flapping like a chick, galloping like a horse, and more.
Pick a card, read it aloud, and play!
In my classroom, I use games like this after circle time, or to transition between activities. Little kids benefit from getting their wiggles out, so that they are able to focus during the times when sitting and listening is important.
Grab your own set of cards to play our gross motor farm game!
Are you into the farm theme as much as we are! Don’t miss any of these amazingly fun ideas!
