Physical Distance and Physical Activity


Social distance is hard for children however exercise and physical activities is more important than ever. There are many ways to get kids active and healthy all while giving space for safety and health. Here is a fun activity you can do at your home or child care site that get kids playing and moving while keeping in mind distance.

Swat the Fly- fun two-person movement activities where kids can help make props that go along with them.


What you will need:

  • Long string for pulling behind one child

  • Paper plate

  • Colored markers

  • Pool noodle

Have children draw a fly on the paper plate and attach it to one end of the string. Have one child run and the other child try to “swat the fly”/ paper plate.

Children can each create their own fly if they wish and pool noodles can be substituted for other long soft objects that can be cleaned between uses.
