Holiday Games and Activities Description

Add fun, fitness, and motor skill development to the holiday seasons with Holiday Games and Activities. These fun activities, developed and field-tested by an experienced elementary physical education specialist, promote the spirit of the season in your classes and help you provide quality physical education for kids in kindergarten through grade 6. They're excellent teaching resources for elementary physical educators, recreation directors, YMCA directors, and playground supervisors.

Holiday Games and Activities divides the school year into eight seasons:

- Back to School
- Halloween
- Thanksgiving
- Winter, Christmas, and Hanukkah
- Valentine's Day, Presidents' Day, and Groundhog Day
- St. Patrick's Day
- Easter
- Summer

For each holiday or season, you'll find physical fitness activities, skills, games, rhythm and dance activities, and illustrated bulletin board ideas. Games and activities like Thankful Turkey Tag, Scrambled Eggs relay race, and Escape From the Spiders obstacle course get students involved and excited about physical education. And their excitement makes teaching fun, too!

- ages for which the activity is appropriate,
- activity goals,
- space required,
