I thought our apple theme was coming to a close, but then I remembered that I hadn’t done a gross-motor activity in this unit yet…
This activity will require a lot of creativity and imagination. This isn’t a bad thing…kids need to be encouraged in “pretend play.”
Here’s what you’ll need: beanbags (I just used the beanbags I made for the Stoplight Beanbag Toss and told Big Brother to pretend they were apples) and a basket.
|After he picked all the apples, he threw them in the basket. First, we started really close to the basket…|
|And then moved about 4-5 feet away.|
|And then the sweetest thing happened. Little Brother was patiently sitting in his high-chair, eating cheerios, when Big Brother suddenly wanted Little Brother to have a turn at throwing the beanbags (all of his own volition)!!! He took the beanbags and basket to him and everything. :)|
Every good Apple Farmer needs an Apple Farmer hat…and a goofy, fake smile apparently too.
