We combined some gross motor practice with some pretend play today in a very simple way.
I dug out a 2×4 from our shed and placed it in the yard to be a balance beam.
|We raked up some leaves to put around our balance beam.|
|And then pretended that the leaves were fire…trying our very best not to step on the fire!|
|“Oh no! Hot, hot hot!”|
|I also tried to show Big Brother how to “walk the line” with one foot in front of the other. We were partially successful. :)|
|Finally, our tractor became a firetruck to put out the fire…|
