Whether it’s to burn energy during cold or rainy days or to work on gross motor skills for indoor recess, we have a collection of activities and games to get children moving. Inspired by our Everyday Fine Motor Materials from A to Z and winter, we’ve once again invited our favorite blogs to help us create a resource of 26 fun active play ideas for kids! Every day a different blog will bring you a new idea to get those wiggles out. Don’t forget to pin this post to have access to all of these games and ideas! This giveaway has ended and been removed!

Follow Still Playing School’s board Still Playing School on Pinterest. We’ve enjoyed following along and trying out all the different gross motor skills and activities. I CAN NOT WAIT to try all these fun activities out with my future classrooms. I’ll definitely give those gross motor activities a try once my kiddos return from holiday! Thank you for sharing, Man With Van Soho Ltd.

Such a creative way of organizing these fun activities for kids. What are the kids stepping on in the picture above? There is a link in the post to the product! Thank you so much for the ideas, I just love the way you put them in alphabetical order. Please do not use any of our images or writing without contacting for permission.

Once your toddler graduates from the stage where everything MUST go in the mouth, it’s time to start having some fun with play dough! For little ones this age, I personally like to use homemade play dough because, let’s face it, there still is a possibility they will try to give it a taste. There are several developmental benefits to playing with play dough including sensory exploration and, of course, using and developing fine motor skills! Shoulder and arm strengthening: Pushing, smashing, and pulling apart play dough all contribute to the shoulder and arm strength that supports the development of hand skills. More info and ideas related to shoulder strength and its relation to fine motor development HERE. Pincer grasp: Pinching with thumb and index finger.
