Activity 1 - Stepping stones

  • Place cushions out on the floor
  • Using your two feet jumping, can you jump between the cushions without landing in the lava?
  • How many jumps can you make without falling?

Progression 1

  • Remove some cushions (to make the jumps bigger) if it is safe to do so

Progression 2

  • Add socks
  • Two foot landing on cushions, one foot landing on socks

Activity 2 - Collect the treasure

  • Place toys out on the floor around the stepping stones as treasure
  • Using the stepping stones can you collect all the treasure without falling in the lava?

Activity 3 - Cat and mouse

  • One is the cat (tagger)
  • The other is the mouse (evading)
