The Playground Parade

Here comes the best playground parade ever!

With all the great examples of parades throughout the month, now is a good time to put on your own playground parade! This is an activity that infants, toddlers, and preschoolers can all participate in. The children will learn great skills such as large motor when they walk around, self-esteem as they participate in the parade, and have fun while doing it! Adding the sight words “stop” and “go” adds to the children’s vocabulary in sight words and in learning action words.

Suggestions:
 Select some parade music to play during the parade.
 Decorate the play area like a float.
 Decorate the fence with ribbon, streamers, signs.
 Have some pre-created shakers, clappers, and rattles.
 Large pre-cut streamers.
 Using chalk, draw a line for the children to follow.
 Write the words “stop” and “go” at the starting point and finish line.
 Take pictures and make a display board.
 Parents can be invited to watch.
