Halloween movement activities are the perfect recipe for this time of year at home or at school. Let’s exercise those gross motor muscles, add in some cross body movement actions and move to music this Halloween to keep spirits high and little creatures happy!
Little fingers can get a workout too! Activities included in this post will have them holding a scarf and waving it around. Be sure to have them switch hands so that both of them get an equal workout!
