Mega Block Jumping is a fun and easy way to keep your active toddler entertained at home! A great gross motor activity for little people!
Do you have a busy active toddler at home? I know intimately what it’s like to have an active toddler at home. So when I set up this super easy gross motor activity I knew they would love it. It had everything a toddler loves: action, imagination and repetition. And it had everything that I love in an activity: easy set plus an even easier clean up.
How to Set Mega Blok Jumping
I decided to set this activity up after breakfast. I pulled out the Mega Blocks and had them help me build the jumping barriers. Of course they wanted to build their own things and we ended up building for quite sometime before even jumping. As soon as I felted they were growing tired of building I put the jumping phase of our activity in motion!
The barriers were only two layer high. We aren’t training for the Olympics here, just some fun gross motor practice! I spread out the barriers with enough space between each so that they were able to either jump, hop, walk or even run over the, without tripping over the next barrier
TIP: Try building color coordinated barriers and invite your toddlers to jump over a certain color!
I made a path way around the table with the barriers and they jumped, walked and ran over each one. As first I let them cross over each barrier however they liked. Then after a few tries I asked them to jump, walk or run over as different animals. Then I asked them to jump/walk/run as different emotions, such as:
This was such as hit, they asked for it again the next day after breakfast!
