Gross Motor Super Hero Activities for Parties or Homeschool Gym Days

We are members of a couple different local homeschool groups. One of our groups meets monthly for “gym day” which is basically just a time when the children can run off some energy with their peers in a safe, enclosed area. Of course free play is encouraged on gym days but we also supply activities to entertain the children. Because gym days are a monthly event, we try to keep supplies and prep time to a minimum. This month’s theme was super hero.

Activity #1: Super Power Charades

Much like regular charades, only instead of acting out a movie title you’ll be acting out the power of flight or invisibility or x-ray vision, to name a few.

Is that more or less than your best bud?
