Re: Indoor Gross Motor Activities

We put all the couch cushions on the floor between the couches and pretend it's a swimming pool. They pretend to swim and jump off the couches onto them.

Races around the kitchen table pretending to be different animals or vehicles.

Pushing large trucks around the house.

Dance parties.

Re: Indoor Gross Motor Activities

I could really never handle chaos in the house.
I know the weather is nasty but I figured if the daycare can take the kids out twice a day, I can too. The fresh air does us all good. Everyone dressed in their waterproof outfits and lots of fleece and off you go. I know we care, but the kids don't seem to. I think the cold weather makes them more tired too.

I love love the kids boating suit for kids. I have used them for my kids two seasons in a row now. They are great. The kids can play in the rain, wind or the mud and stay clean dry and happy. They have really good features like velcro around the arms and legs for better fit and elastic around the waist and the quality is really good. They run big so I got two seasons out of them and the elastic makes it so they are not obnoxious when you buy a little big.

Re: Indoor Gross Motor Activities

So forgive me I didn't read all responses but here is what my kids like to do:

Jump off the couch onto cushions.

Make a fort of cushions and blankets

Make an obstacle course with the kitchen table (crawl under) and hula hoops (to jump through)

Dance
