Do the words “indoor recess” strike you with a bit of fear? There is nothing like have a bunch of kids stuck indoors for days at a time when the temperature dips too low to go outside. Plus, it’s super hard to concentrate when all they want to do is wiggle. No worries! Just take a brain break with this fun winter gross motor dice set. Kids will love the silly activities and you can easily tie it to your winter themed activities.
Of course, with all activities remind the kids to use their bodies appropriately so that no one gets too silly and gets hurt. Because that would not be fun.
But doing activities like waddling like a penguin, now that is fun!
Materials Needed for the Winter Gross Motor Dice
Paper | Scissors | Differentiated Instruction Cube | Tape (optional)
To prep: Choose from the color or black & white winter gross motor dice. If you do not have a Differentiated Instruction Cube, you can use the DIY cube that is included, but I highly recommend getting the cubes because they can be used in so many ways to customize your learning activities.
You can check out some other fun activities that we’ve done with the Differentiated Instruction Cubes here.
Cut apart the card and place them in the photo slots on the cube.
To use the Winter Gross Motor Dice: Have the kids take turns rolling the cube and then have the whole group act out the winter theme gross motor actions.
The kids love acting out the actions!
“Shovel the snow.”
“Slip on the ice.”
“Waddle like a penguin.”
Want to save on ink or you can’t print in color? No worries! There is a set of black and white dice included that you can have the kids color themselves.
Either way, your kids will love these Winter Themed Gross Motor Dice for Brain Breaks! And you won’t need to fear indoor recess anymore!
