Walking in and on others shoes

A fun way to get children moving is to have them think of all the types of shoes that can be worn. Have the children move as if they were wearing the following: fireman boots, ballet slippers, cowboy boots, horse shoes, huge clown shoes, hiking boots, astronaut boots, tightrope walker shoes, etc. Now have the children explore moving in the various shoes through different environments (deep snow, sticky mud, icy sidewalk, crossing a rushing river, climbing a sand dune, walking across a hot dessert, walking on marshmallows, walking on jello, etc.
