Ways To Play

These movement cards are a great way to get your kids up and moving in a creative way!


You can have your kids choose a card at random and do the movement that it says.


See who can do the best impression of a specific bug.


Do a relay race with the different movements.


Someone can do a movement and everyone can try to guess which bug they are acting like.


Try a game of “physical telephone”. Child A selects a card and then acts out the movement to child B. Child B then acts out the movement to child C. Child C in turn acts out the movement to child D and so on until everyone has had a chance to go. Watch as the bug movements get a little mixed up and get sillier and sillier!


The fun is endless!


The cards don’t just have to be for exercise!


You can discuss and explore the different insects and learn more about each one.


Sort the bugs by which ones can fly, which ones make sounds, or by which ones build something (i.e. a hive, cocoon, or web).


Talk about where each insect lives and what they can do.


To craft your movement cards:

  1. Download the pdf file
  2. Print out the cards (The bugs may be a bit fuzzy if the cards are printed too big!) You can print out the cards on card stock or laminate the cards to better protect them from wear and tear.
  3. Cut out your cards. I like to round the corners to avoid sharp edges!
