Rainbow Relay Race
Gross motor activity for rainbow or weather theme. Grab colored buckets, bowls, or baskets, and matching colored string and small toys. We used baskets and Duplo. Children walk along the string beam bringing one piece of Duplo to the basket at a time.
Blizzard in a Bag
Perfect scissor practice. Cut up tiny pieces of thin paper or Styrofoam, place in your decorated zip-lock bag, insert a straw, and blow! Fun fact: blowing through a straw actually helps with speech development/production!
