As preschool teachers, we know the amazingness that is outdoor play. The fresh air, the movement, the unstructured play. But, when winter (or the rain) puts a halt to outdoor play, it can leave both children and teachers in a cooped-up, cranky state!

So, today I wanted to share with you some Indoor Gross Motor ideas - many shared from fellow teachers in our Lovely Preschool Teachers Facebook Group. Just because the outdoors is off limits, doesn't mean we shouldn't be providing time and space for gross motor movement.

Topics Discussed:

  • Indoor Gross Motor Games and Activities
  • Indoor Gross Motor Toys we Love
