Inside Recess Fun

I don't know about you, but it seems like there are so many days each year where we are stuck INSIDE for recess.  It's either rain, snow, temperature, or ozone alerts that prevent us from going outside.  Sometimes I let the kids have "free time," but honestly, that can be very loud and messy!  :-)

When we are stuck inside, I KNOW my kids need to expend energy and exercise!  I came up with some fun physical activities for the kids to do.  I set it up like stations.  I hang posters around the room, and kiddos rotate with a partner to each "station."  None of the activities require any equipment so it's fast and easy to set up.  The exercises are all common, and kiddos are familiar with them from PE class so they really have a ball with it.
Check out a few example posters from my Inside Recess Fun product:
 
 
 
 
As always, set your behavior and noise level expectations before beginning!  Have fun!

Comment on this post and let me know what you think.  Don't forget to include your e-mail.  I'll choose a few lucky winners, and send you Inside Recess Fun for FREE!

These are so awesome!!!!
What I love about it, is that it can be used in various ways - raining days, brain breaks, whole group center time - play.

I would love to have a copy of this packet.
Thanks in advance.

The kids don't like inside recess so your pack would be great to add some fun factor to inside recess! The crab walk is funny!

This is such a great option for indoor recess, which can be such a drag!
