Movement Card Game

What You Need:

  • Index cards or enough paper to make 20 small cards (about the size of a playing card)
  • Markers

What You Do: 

  1. Using index cards or 10 small pieces of paper, write one movement on each card (e.g., jumping jacks, spins, hopping on one foot, touching toes, reaching for the sky, etc.).
  2. Using 10 more index cards or pieces of paper, write the numbers 1–10 (one number per card).
  3. Stack each set of cards (numbers and movements) next to each other facedown.
  4. Invite your child to pick a card from each deck, then read the cards aloud. 
  5. Have all players stand up and complete the movement for the number of times specified (e.g., 8 jumping jacks).
  6. Repeat with a new player choosing cards.
  7. Play until you have gone through the entire deck at least one time. 
  8. Variation: Use a timer to see how many repetitions each player can complete in a given amount of time. For example, how many jumping jacks can each player complete in 30 seconds?
