The players make big arm movements as they look for ladybirds under the autumn leaves. The little bugs move beneath the leaves to ensure they stay focused on the game. The sound of rustling leaves stimulates the senses and gives the feeling of being outside. Found all the ladybirds? Then see how they dance!
Make the game more fun
- Give the players a broom and dustpan to practise movements with a clear purpose.
- Place real leaves on the table to reinforce the autumnal feel.
The players do not only observe the games, but must also be able to focus their attention on them.
