Daily Activity for Kids – Day 44 – Animal Kingdom Physical Activity

During this COVID-19 pandemic, many parents are home with their children and looking for things to do. This is a daily post to give you ideas of fun things to do. It comes from activities that we implement at our daycare centre using our Four Pillars of Learning curriculum. Since we are closed during this time, we are sharing the activity for you to implement in your own home. Enjoy!

Daily Activity for Kids – Animal Kingdom Physical Activity

Physical activity is so important, especially since we are spending so much time indoors. The weather has not been the best to get us outside and keep us active. We have a fun way to keep your child active and their imagination going. We call it Animal Kingdom. The game is simple and easy to play. Feel free to join in the movements with your child. It will make it more fun for them if you participate too!

Choose any animal and ask your child to make the sounds that animal would make and move like that animal. Ask your child to hop like a frog, walk like a penguin, slither like a snake, climb like a monkey, swim like a fish and so on. Imitating the movements of different animals will develop their physical strength and they will learn something about how the animals move.

You can choose to take a video of this activity so your child can watch it back after and have a good laugh.

This daily kids activity incorporates many learning areas based on our Four Pillars of Learning curriculum including: (STEAM – science), physical activity and language skills.
