    We have a very small centre and some very activie children. Any ideas for gross motor circle songs and activities or gross motor activities for outside? They seem to get very violent outside as there isn't much opportunity for large motor activities.

    Hop along balls and big balls from Wal-Mart are good things to get if you get or have any money.

    Jump the numbers...chant this: "Jump, jump the numbers jump, be a kangaroo, see what you can do, jump jump the numbers jump, everybody hear we go! Jump one time...jump two times...jump three times..." Then start again from the begining, continuing with four five six, start again, then seven-ten.
