Logi-Bear picked out I Am A Backhoe at the library one week and I fell in love. It’s such a cute book! And I was inspired to make some movement cards we could use at home to recreate the book.
I love finding ways to get them to move and be active that they also enjoy. These movements are so much fun that it’s hard not to enjoy them!
Construction Movement Cards
Sometimes kids just need an easy going time to move a bit in a directed way. These cards let kids act out their favorite construction trucks while getting a great brain break.
Let them get those muscles moving before (or after) you sit down the read the book!
You could even use these cards for a fun Simon Says game. Simon Says is now the head of construction! Listen to what he says to do.
If you do a movement that Simon doesn’t Say, you’re out!
Kids can also use them alone, in a group, with a friend, or just to look at! These cards can have many purposes, so don’t limit yourself to just one!
I wanted the cards to be a good size, so I made them half a page.
I chose a few additional books and toys that would work great with these movement cards:
