Free preschool games that get kids moving are often just what excitable kids and tired parents need the most!

Imagi-Motion gives kids an opportunity to do two things they love: to pretend and to have an audience to watch them!

Imagi-Motion is more than just a fun game though...

It helps kids develop locomotor skills and encourages imaginative thinking as well. This is a great game to play with a single child or any number of children.

Secrets for a Great Dish:

  • The freer, sillier and more dramatic you are as the leader, the better.
  • If kids are having trouble getting started, act them out yourself and they will have fun imitating and joining in.

For a Twist:

  • Think of your own scenarios.
  • Think of scenarios kids can do in pairs.
  • Have kids come up with their own ideas to challenge the others with.
  • Play fun music and background sound effects appropriate for the different movements.
