3 games to play with your Circles
1 Slalom racing
Print out all the different coloured circles and put them on the ground with at least 1 metre space between them. Ask your child to ride a trike, scooter, run or hop between them forwards and backwards. If your child’s in a trike, up the fun factor by pushing them round the slalom, encouraging them to steer around the circles. Use a timer or count out the seconds for some racing action.
2 Jumping colours
Lay the circles on the ground in a small circle, so that your child can reach each circle with a jump. When you call out one of the colours of the circles, your child should jump on that one. Then call out a different colour and watch them jump on that one. Call some fast, some slow, and sometimes call out the colour they’re on to see where they’ll jump.
3 Counting jumps
Print out 4 copies of each circle. Mix them up and lay them out randomly in a windy line. Give instructions for your child to jump on a certain number of circles before stopping, eg, jump 4 circles forward, jump 2 circles back and hop 2 circles forward. Then tell your child to avoid the hazard circles – these must be jumped over – without falling off a circle.
