Animal Activities


Walk Like the Animals

This is a fun activity to do with a group of friends at a park or beach. Have races where you walk like the animals.

What You'll Need:

Group of friends

Once you've gathered all your friends together, decide on a starting and finishing line, and try the following animal races:

Crab Race: Racers are on all fours (hands and feet), and must move sideways.

Chimp Race: Racers hold their ankles with their hands or drag their knuckles on the ground.

Frog Race: Racers squat in frog position and hop.

Can you think of other animals to imitate in your races? Let your imagination run wild -- and may the fastest animal win!
