Using a cube template from whsdesign as a base, I added animal pictures to each face of the cube: crocodile, elephant, frog, penguin, dog and monkey. I chose these animals because they have distinctive movements associated with them.

I printed the cube onto white cardstock, cut it out then glued it together.

I took the animal movement cube to a playdate with our friends from Lalymom. I explained that they roll (or gently throw) the die, and then everyone had to impersonate the animal that was on the top face of the cube. Here are some suggestions:

  • Dog: Imitate licking, panting,  tail wagging, barking, woofing
  • Crocodile: Opening and shutting straight arms held out in front, snapping noises
  • Penguin: Arms down by sides with hands turned out, waddling action
  • Elephant: Holding arm to side of nose as if it were a trunk, elephant trumpet noises
  • Frog: Squatting down and making jumps, gribbit noises
  • Monkey: Pretending to swing from trees, scratching, eating banana, lots of “oo-oo-ee-ee-aa-aa” sounds!

Miss 4 absolutely loved it (after she got over the lack of zebra on the cube) and delighted in doing all the animal impersonations. F and Mr 1 joined in when they felt like it!Animal Movement Game - gross motor fun for kids. With free printable.

The next day F and I were stuck inside due to the rain. The game turned into a perfect rainy day activity!
