My favorite Gross Motor activity with my preschoolers has always been Lummi Sticks and the Records for Lummi Sticks. Great songs that children are familiar with, from opening songs of cartoons, to songs from commercials, to popular children songs. Children learn singing and rhythm, get exercise and develop following direction skills.
Hint: Be sure to be a “leader” and use the lummi stick, sing along and do the exercises.
