Games for 3 - 5yrs Twinkle Toes
Sometimes even the best of us are simply exhausted and it always happens to coincide with a massive burst of energy from your little ones. Draw the curtains, sit down on the sofa and play twinkle toes to get your little ones running around doing all the hard work!
What you will need:
- curtains drawn
- a torch
This is so easy you will wonder why you didn't think of it before!
Draw the curtains in a room - ideally one with a comfortable sofa so you can sit down in comfort!
Then switch on the torch and point it on the floor.
The aim of the game is to get your children to jump on the spotlight - you have to move the torch so that the light moves to a different spot when they manage it.
You need to accompany it with exciting noises a big "where will the magic light stop....." move the torch light round the floor really fast....
Then shout "there it is!!" and see how long it takes for your little ones to notice it and jump on it with both feet!
Then a big "Hooray" and off you go again.
We usually manage to keep this up for at least long enough for me to drink a lovely cup of tea......
