Cart Mill Mini Olympic Games

The children have been busy in our garden developing their gross motor skills.

The children were able to follow the instructions on the ground to develop their co ordination and balance, Hopping like a bunny and hopping on one leg like a flamingo

Once the children got the hang of this. They decided they wanted to add their own ideas.

“Let’s add some star jumps”

The children worked collaboratively using their imagination to come up with some great ideas to add.

“Let’s add a dancing box”.                  “Can we stomp like a dinosaur”.    “We need a shouting box”

We even added a love box at the end to and hug a friend and celebrate friendship.

The children had great fun using their own thoughts and ideas in this game. I’m sure we will be re visiting this again and come up with more fantastic ideas.

Bowling Cart Mill style

The children showed in interest in rolling the blocks this morning.

We decided to set up some pins to see if we could knock them down.

“it quite tricky” “it’s rolling the wrong way”

We continued our game outside and use the balls this time.

“Strike well done!”


“Strike well done!”

“Strike well done!”

We each counted out how many pins we knocked down and created a chart to record our score using tally marks.
