Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle

Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle

It’s time to 'Squiggle whilst you Wiggle'! Early years 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 (Disney songs always work well and are well liked). Make circles, lines and arches to the song using your 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. Have fun squiggling and wiggling! 


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