How do you keep a group of kids busy at day care? Sure, there's always arts and crafts, snacks, and naptime, but what do you do to wear them down for that nap? What can you do to keep the kids healthy and active? Here, you'll find a few ideas of games that can be played in day care with kids of various ages.
Egg/Marshmallow Spoon Challenge
This game is fun for people of all ages, and it doesn't take much to get it going. You'll need a bag of large marshmallows or some plastic eggs, some tablespoons or large mixing spoons for the little ones, a couple of bowls or buckets, and kids.
This game will not only help get the kids up and active, but will help to improve balance, hand-eye coordination, and team work.
Color, Shape, and Letter Leap Pads
Depending on the level of education of the kids, you can cut out shapes, draw letters, or just use colored sheets of paper to create a floor covered in "leap pads" for the kids to jump to.
For the little ones that know their colors:
You can create different variations of this game to accommodate older kids — for example, you can write letters on the paper and call out a word for the kids to try to complete.
Keeping kids active is so important. Not only will it help them to stay healthy and strong, but it will keep things more peaceful as the kids won't be bored and full of unused energy.Share

When I was sixteen-years-old, I began exercising regularly. Working out completely changed my life. I lost 30 pounds. My energy and endurance drastically improved. I became happier and more confident. Do you desperately desire to do something to make your life better? Consider beginning an exercise routine.
