Exercise isn’t something we worry too much about throughout the majority of the year when it comes to our children. With the warm, sunny days and plenty of time spent outside running and exploring, they get plenty of it on a daily basis.
But as the winter season starts moving in and the temperatures begin dropping, at times below freezing, it gets harder and harder to spend a decent amount of time outdoors and it isn’t long before cabin fever starts setting in.
This year though, we’ve started prepping early by looking for more ways to get some of that energy out, while staying warm inside the house and one of our favorites so far is this set of alphabet gross motor cards.
Other than printing them off and cutting each printed page into 4 cards, this particular set is practically prep free (unless you decide to add the step of laminating them, that is).
To make them easier to keep track of and use, we actually laminated each of our cards, punched a hole in one of the top corners, and have them all strung on a metal book ring.
This way, we don’t have to worry about losing a letter or two and they don’t fly all over the place when little hands are trying to look and sort through them. And with large text and big, colorful images, these gross motor alphabet cards are perfect for even the littlest of learners!
