How to Play

Pretend that you have a large remote control (or make one!) and that you are pressing the different buttons to make the kids move:

  • Play – move normally
  • Fast forward – move quickly
  • Rewind – move backwards
  • Pause – freeze!
  • Slow motion – slow movements
     
Change it up / Alternatives / Additional Options
  • Enhance this activity by also suggesting the type of show that you are watching.
  • For example, if it is a car show the kids are all cars and they can decide what kind of vehicle to be.
  • Or perhaps it is a nature show and they can be any animal they like.
