Deck of Cards

BOKS Burst

Materials: deck of cards, face cards removed

*No deck of cards? Use papers with numbers 1-10 written on them! 

Assign a movement to each of the 4 suits, such as:

  • Jumping jacks (Diamonds)
  • Squats (Hearts)
  • Lunges (Clubs)
  • Butt kickers (Spades)

Pick a card from the deck and then have the kids perform the number and type of movements that corresponds with the chosen card. Let the kids take turns picking the cards.

Tip: you can write a legend of the movements and suits on the board for children to refer to.
