About “Farm Bowling” Music Therapy Activity
This movement oriented activity is ideal for young children with and without disabilities working on motor coordination, play skills, turn-taking, and following instructions. It can be used in a group or one to one with an adult.
Rachel has also included adaptations to help you scale this activity for learners of varying levels. After singing the “Farm Bowling” song included on the PDF, children get to choose one of the cute picture cards and follow the corresponding instructions as they bowl. Some of the multi-step directions found in the game include:
- Gallop your way to the starting line and shout Yeehaw!
- Turn around and throw the ball under your legs.
- Kick your left foot three times while you Baaaa.
