In and Out the Doors

Activity for a group

Age group: 30-40 months

Duration of activity: Variable

By playing this fun game, your child will be learning the directions in, out, and through. It is also a great way to build large motor skills. Once your child has mastered the basic activity, add excitement by challenging her to do it faster and faster.

  1. Participants hold hands while standing in a circle. Players need to stand far enough apart that they can hold their arms outstretched.
  2. Players can make one of two configurations. If they hold their arms straight out, they are making a window. If they raise their arms, they are creating a door.
  3. One player stands in the center. She then goes in and out of the circle by passing through the doors the other players have made. She cannot go through any windows. Players in the circle can change from a door to a window as they choose.
