Skill 7: Creativity
During sessions, allow children to put their own spin on an activity
Creativity is so important and easy to develop with physical activity
You could help them to create a story:
Go on an imaginary adventure pretending to be an animal in the jungle.
Maybe you're all monkeys:
- What's their name?
- What colour is their fur?
- How tall are they?
Here you can let their imagination run wild whilst incorporating Fundamental Movement Skills into the adventure. They could reach for fruit on the tip of their toes, or act like a monkey whilst performing a seated balance.
With this style of delivery the options are limitless and that's the attitude you'll reinforce in each child.
