Mommy & Me Monday: Look, Jump, Letter Stomp

Here is a fun little game that Jonah loves to play when we’re outside! I’ve named it “Look and Jump, Letter Stomp”. All you need is some space and sidewalk chalk! Cheap & Easy!

I wrote letters J and A in an alternating pattern along the sidewalk. I switched it up every once in a while to make it “hard”.  I wrote the kids’ names (we were playing with a friend) at the “starting line” and the “finish line”. Then they looked for their letter, jumped, and stomped! I also made them say the name of their letter each time they stomped.

Look, Jump, Letter Stomp Large Motor GameJonah loves playing this and requests it now. Eventually I will scaffold this activity for him and use the same color of chalk for both letters. This activity can be also be used for other concepts–shapes, numbers, abc order, etc. Really the possibilities are endless!

    Great idea! I had a hands on learner that we always had to have creative – interactive ways to teach. This would have been great for him.

  4. What a great idea! We've played this as "logs across the river" across our driveway–but just with circles. I like your idea much better!
