RUNNING THROUGH THE GRASS This activity can be done on a nice sunny day outdoors,
or you can do the same things inside and just pretend that
you are outside. Have your child take off his shoes and socks
and run through the grass in his bare feet.

INSECTS IN THE GRASS
Children love to pretend to be insects. Encourage
your child to act out some common insects, we sometimes
find in grass.
Ants like to march through the grass. Let's be ants
and march together across the grass.
Caterpillars like to crawl through the grass. Let's
hook together and crawl through the grass.
Beetles like to scurry through the grass. Can you scurry
without bumping anything.?
Grasshoppers like to hop through the grass. Let's hop
across the grass like grasshoppers.
Bees like to fly across the grass smelling flowers and
clover. Let's hook on our wings, turn on our buzzers and
fly across the top of the grass looking for flowers.
Let your child decide what they like
to do best on the grass and act it out.
