This activity by Ziggy is a game that will help give your Early Learning and Childcare group an idea of how hard a road or a vehicle might be compared to their body. It’s to help them realise the potential dangers, and make them become more aware of the hazards around roads.

  • Step 1: Everyone find a space and jog on the spot
  • Step 2: Bend down and touch the ground – how does it feel? (e.g. hard) And then touch your tummy – how does it feel? (e.g. soft).
  • Step 3: When I say ‘tummy’ I want you to lie down on the floor – being careful not to hurt yourself.
  • Then repeat the steps using different body parts (e.g. knee, elbow, ear, etc).
