Creative Activity – Change 123

Creative Activity – Change 123

This is a focus activity which I will always use to begin any session. Works with all ages. A really fun activity at getting children warmed up.

Ask the children to find a partner. Stand facing each other.

Count to 3 but take it in turns to say a number, when you get to 3 start again at 1.

Challenge 1 – replace the number 1 with a clap.

Challenge 2 – replace the number 2 with a word, “banana” for example.

Challenge 3 – replace the number 3 with a jump shouting “boom”.

You can change the action to anything you like, make it as outrageous and playful as you want.
