Harvest time and Halloween inspire wonderful creative movement activities for children. This time of the year provides an opportunity to put imagination, story telling, and creative characters into action. Some fresh new ideas can be generated by combining fun physical movements with words that spark magical stories, scenes, and characters. Some examples of words that can be used are: scarf, candle, shoe, jewel, pumpkin, wishing well, coin, mirror, crystal, flute, map, key, feather, fan, etc. Your children will enjoy creating more magical words and movements to portray these ideas. Add music and sounds to make the experience more fun.
