Everyone’s looking for more ways to keep in shape during the pandemic. Children too need lot’s of physical activities they can do at home.
That’s why I’ve been creating thematic scarf activities for teachers and parents to use at home and in the classroom.
VALENTINE’S DAY SCARF ACTIVITIES FOR ELEMENTARY MUSIC CLASS
Movement activities encourage brain connections and help children in so many ways!
Movement is a powerful learning tool, particularly for students who are bodily-kinesthetically inclined.
In addition, scarf activities are perfect for exercising and developing gross motor skills.
And, my favorite reason is that moving around with scarves encourages creativity. Scarves are not just for waving around!
Children will take a scarf and turn it into so many different things!
- A costume
- A blanket for the stuffed animal
- A bag to carry toys
- A mat to play on with dolls
WHY CHILDREN LOVE SCARVES
Children love to wave scarves around.
Children can use a towel, bandana, scarf, tissue wrapping paper, washcloth- even a tissue in this activity.
Have your students follow the valentine monster moves using their hands.
Be sure to encourage BIG MOVEMENTS!
SCARF RESOURCES VIRTUAL AND IN PERSON CLASSES
This Valentine’s Day Movement & Music Video activity will help keep your active in music class, take a brain break and exercise!
Students can stand in their own space or dance around their living rooms while exercising gross and fine motor muscles.
Use the video in your virtual classrooms for February music and movement activities. Perfect for K-3 students.
You will love having the rules and directions as well as the specific movements for optimal gross motor action!
Hope your students enjoy playing with scarves during Valentine’s Day music activities!
