The Mr. Man Game

Age Range: 5 - 7
By: Lisa McCullagh

This is an easy warm-up involving no equipment. Say the name of a Mr. Man and children have to move like him. The ones I use are:

  • Mr. Slow - move slowly.
  • Mr. Rush - move fast.
  • Mr. Jelly - shake your whole body.
  • Mr. Muddle - walk backwards.
  • Mr. Bounce - bounce!
  • Mr. Small - crouch and move.
  • Mr. Strong - move flexing your muscles.
  • Mr. Tall - stretch up and move (good for stretching once the children's hearts are racing.)

Sammy Rosehill has also suggested these ideas:

  • Mr. Tickle - wave around your arms in a crazy way.
  • Mr. Happy - move around with big smiles on your face.

You can obviously add more including Little Miss characters. The children can also add their own ideas meaning they never get bored of this game!

Sounds like fun! You could have the boys being the 'Mr Men' while the girls stand still. Then get the girls to be the 'Little Miss' while boys stand still.
