COOPERATIVE MOVEMENT GAMES

Kids playing
 

BEAR BOUCE

  • Place a small blanket on the floor with a teddy bear in the middle.
  • Have two children each grab two corners of the blanket.
  • Then let them have fun tossing and catching the bear with the blanket.
     

BLANKET LIFT

  • Place a blanket on the floor.
  • Have several children sit on the floor around the edges of the blanket and put their legs underneath it.
  • Have the children raise their legs off the ground to lift the blanket.

 
SHADOW DANCING

  • Arrange a bright light to shine on the children so that it casts their shadows on a wall.
  • Let the children put on “Shadow Shows” in groups of three to five.
  • Have the other children try to guess what the group is doing by looking at their shadows.
     

MIRROR PARTNERS

  • Divide the children into pairs. 
  • Have the children in each pair face one another.
  • Ask one child in each pair to move his or her hands slowly while the other child mirrors his or her movements.
  • Then have the children reverse roles.
