Pokemon Activity for Kids with Free Printable!
While reading through The Official National Pokedex book with my boys one night, I suggested that they try recreating some of the Pokemon character's attacks and moves. The kids had so much fun flipping through the book, picking a character, and trying to perform an action based on the Pokemon's particular attack name. So I decided to turn it into a printable set that we could use over and over again for a quick gross motor boredom buster when we needed it.
This free printable set of action cards includes 55 prompts and ideas. They are a great way to work on the following skills:
- Imaginative play
- Gross motor skills
- Emotional awareness (make a scary face or show a mean look, for example, work on complex emotions)
- Listening skills & oral comprehension
- Following directions
- Taking turns (each person playing takes turns selecting a card and performing the action)
For a fun twist, play this game like "Simon Says." Pick an action card, say "Pokemon trainer [insert name] says," and get the kids to perform the action.
