It’s time to 'Squiggle whilst you Wiggle'! Reception love this gross motor skill activity. First grab yourself two ‘flipper flappers’ (these can be two pieces of kitchen towel, tissues, napkins, dusters, whatever you can find that is similar). Hold one in each hand. Next choose a song (Dance Monkey and George Ezra – Shotgun are some of our favourites). Reception children you now need to become the teacher and show your families how we can make circles, lines and arches to the song using our flipper flappers. Once you have done this, replay the song again but this time make the same motions on a piece of paper with two crayons. Reception knows exactly how it goes J have fun!

This video will give you an idea of how 'squiggle whilst you wiggle' works.
