Mini Moves Activity Pack
Using bright colours, a few cute ‘monsters’ and their friends, the Mini Moves Activity Pack has been designed to assist Early Childhood Educators in teaching Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) to children (aged 2 – 5 years) in a fun and engaging way.
FMS are the building blocks for childrens' enjoyment and success in physical activity from childhood through to adulthood.
The Mini Moves resource includes 36 activity cards designed for easy use by educators with no experience teaching FMS.
The Mini Moves Activity Pack comes with:
Mini Moves Activity Pack
- 1 Display Poster
- 12 FMS Skill Cards (to explain each skill)
- 36 FMS Skill Activity Cards
- 5 Warm-Up Cards
- 5 Cool-Down Cards
The Mini Moves display poster has been designed to be placed in a prominent position in the preschool room where it can be seen by educators, children and parents.
The poster promotes all 12 FMS that children 3-5 years should be exposed to and start to develop while in childcare.
The activity cards can be placed on or near the wall poster to promote the activities chosen each week.
It is recommended to print the poster in A3 or A1 if using a printing service.

The activities on the Mini Moves Warm-Up Activity Cards help children get their muscles ready to participate in the fun Mini Moves activities:
Warm-Up Activity Cards
Under each FMS heading below you will find:
- One skill card describing the correct technique and how to demonstrate/teach the skill
- Three double sided activity cards based on the skill.
All activity cards include:
- Steps describing the activity
- A diagram of what the activity looks like set up
- Equipment (if any is needed)
- Where the activity should be played (indoors/outdoors)
- Tips to make the activity easier or harder
It is recommended the cards are printed double sided on A4 or printed four cards to a page (with page in landscape).
We recommend choosing two skills to focus on each week!
