One gross motor activity for a 3-year-old with the topic of “my family” could be a family relay race. Here’s how you can set it up:

Materials needed: - Open space (such as a backyard or a large room) - Cones or markers to create a race course - Pictures of family members (optional)

Instructions: 1. Set up a race course using cones or markers. Make sure it is a safe and clear path for the children to run. 2. If you have pictures of family members, place them at different points along the race course. If not, you can simply use cones or markers to mark the spots. 3. Divide the children into teams, with each team having an equal number of participants. 4. Explain to the children that they will be running a relay race to find and collect pictures of their family members. 5. Each team will take turns running from the starting point to the first marker, where they will find a picture of a family member. They will then run back to their team and hand off the picture to the next teammate. 6. The next teammate will run to the second marker, find another family member’s picture, and return to the team to hand it off to the next teammate. 7. The race continues until all family member pictures have been collected and brought back to the team. 8. The first team to collect all the pictures and have all their teammates complete the race wins.

This activity not only promotes gross motor skills such as running and coordination but also encourages teamwork and familiarity with family members.
