The Musical Hearts
Have your kids move with this fun musical hearts game. This game is sort of like musical chairs. But, use big foam hearts instead. Place the hearts on the floor and start the music. When the music stops the children find a heart to stand on. And I especially love the part: The hearts have certain commands under them whenever the children stop on one. When the music stops, the kids should flip their heart and do what’s on the other side. Get the tutorial via teachmama.
