A while ago, we found ourselves in trouble when thinking about how to celebrate our son’s 7th birthday. It didn’t take very long until we got it: “He is going to enjoy it with his classmates, in the gym!” And what a blast it was! They have played their favorite games and towards the end they had the “cherry on the cake”: The Great Chopstick Hunt! Overcoming obstacles with the aim to find precious candies that had to be picked and taken back to their team, with wood chopsticks. Using fine motor skills to perform various precise and refined movements was never so rewarding!
As June is approaching we have to find another way to involve children in physical movement, before they will indulge with savory chocolate or sweet cupcakes. If you have any amazing ideas to share, your comments are much appreciated.
