52 Weeks of Stroller Runner Games: #3 Find the Cars
FREE Printable Below
Find the Cars was inspired by my 3 year old and his love for Disney Cars. He loves anything pertaining to transportation; he is all boy; planes, trains and automobiles. This game is an easy game to incorporate and extremely fun for any child who loves cars. Find the Cars will only work if you are running on a sidewalk where cars pass by or on a trail that is parallel with the road. If you are running through a park, this probably will not be the Stroller Game you will choose. For this workout, if your child is two years old or older, let your child participate in the squats and lunges portion of the workout. Most 2-4 years old like to get out and exercise and do what mommy and daddy do. Stroller Runner Workout From Jared at Tone and Tighten Warm up- 10 minutes 5 minutes of moderate walk, increase to a faster speed for the five remaining minutes. Cardio- 5 minutes Speed walking- Focus on taking as long of steps as you can- extend each leg as forward as possible. (Jog or run if you can- push yourself to go as hard as you can!) 20 Squat and Rolls Holding onto stroller handle, squat low and push stroller out as you move down. Pull stroller back towards you as you stand up. Cardio- 10 minutes Speed walking- Focus on taking as long of steps as you can- extend each leg as forward as possible. (Jog or run if you can- push yourself to go as hard as you can!) 20 Lunges Holding onto handle of stroller, pushing baby forward. 10 lunges on each side for 20 total. Cardio- 10 minutes Speed walking- Focus on taking as long of steps as you can- extend each leg as forward as possible. (Jog or run if you can- push yourself to go as hard as you can!) Cool down with a moderate walk. Target Age Group: 2-4 years old How to Play: Print the Free Printable Find the Cars game. Laminate it for future use and provide a washable marker. However, if you do not trust your child with a washable marker, print out the Find The Cars game when necessary and provide your child with a crayon. Provide your child with the printable and explain to them that when they find a car or truck similar to the picture on the sheet, then to cross the automobile out. In my house, that generally means drawing a picture on top of the car, but it works and keeps my child occupied longer. You might not find these specific cars, but in our instance, we look for cars that are similar or have the same color and just make up some rules/guidelines as we go. Preparation Time (More Advanced Game): 0-5 minutes time required (depends if you choose to laminate your sheets or not).
