Using chalk draw a variety of pathways on sidewalk, pavement, or walkway such as: curvy, straight, zig zag or even curly. Have children to participate by drawing the lines and walking on it like a tightrope


Move, Play and Learn Dinosaur big and small, fast and slow

Brain storm opposites such as big/small, fast/slow, loud/quiet, wide/narrow, high/low, heavy/light.

In a big space: Move across the space that space starting with the first concept and end with its opposite. Example: players could begin by running very slow, gradually getting faster until they reach the other side. Or they can start by marching with really big body and, as they cross the yard, gradually become smaller until they reach the end.

In a small space: Instead of moving across the space play the game by staying in place. Example: Marching in place, begin with big march to small march etc.


Homemade music

Use old coffee cans, make sure there are no rough edges. Remove paper around can and allow child/children to decorate it any way they desire. Tape/glue lid in place and use this as drum. Create different rhythms, beats, or try to repeat sounds played from their favorite songs.

Take plastic two plastic spoons, dried rice, beans, sand or, beads. With a spoon place dried materials in a spoon place second spoon on top and tape together, children can color the spoons to their desire. Create different rhythms, beats, or try to repeat sounds played from their favorite songs. Use these instruments while playing dinosaur stump or playing Dinosaur Dinosaur (tune: Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear).
