Dance My Dance and Freeze Dance
Take turns challenging each other to walk like a particular person might, such as a tightrope walker, astronaut on the moon, window washer on a high ledge, old person, baby learning to walk, circus clown, marching soldier, etc. Also, play music and let the children dance and then suddenly stop the music. Instruct the children to freeze when the music stops. Then start the music again! In addition to sparking the imagination, this activity involves a great deal of controlled movement.
