In this dance activity, your child will try to simulate the ways animals move. Start with familiar animals-cat, dog, duck, and lizard, for example. Say, "If you were a cat, how would you come towards me?" or,"lf you were a lizard, how would you move away from me?" Avoid telling your child to move like a certain animal. Instead, allow him or her to sense and create the movements from within. Finally, let your child decide the animal.
