Playing Elevator

ages 2-6



Activity Detail

Spread a towel on the ground for your 'elevator.' Step in and push the pretend button to travel to different floors. Describe each step: 'The door is opening' (show with your hands). 'We're getting on the elevator' (step on the towel). 'We're pushing two' (push button). 'We're going up' (look up), etc. Get off at different floors and describe what you see at each one. Visit the whispering floor, the jumping/ flying floor, the eating ice cream floor, the walking backwards floor, the tiger floor, etc. Put your acting skills to the test - go all out!

This activity really encourages imaginative play and would be a great way to while away some time with the kids on the beach.

This is a great "impromptu" activity to do with your children as you are waiting for someone to join you, or just need to occupy 5 minutes of time. It's a great opportunity to develop your child's imagination....you might be surprised at what you come up with, too!

This activity is a great way to engage a young children's imagination and help older ones learn to follow directions.
