Get enough cushions (or pillows) so there is one per person. You'll need to play some background music. Tell the children that they are in the sea and to start "swimming" around to the music. When you stop the music shout out "There's a storm coming - dash to an island!". Everyone must jump onto a cushion so no part of their body is touching the sea (the floor).
Start the music again and the game resumes with a new variation. Ask them to be fishes, swimming in the sea. When you stop the music tell them there is a big shark coming to eat them.
You can try other ideas such as
with the children
- being dolphins
- rowing boats
- being crabs
- being mermaids
Give everyone a clap and a prize for joining in.
You can remove a cushion each time if you want to make this game competitive, and one person then goes out each round until you get a winner.
Great fun for the little ones!
