This activity will work better in a large space or hall so the children have got room to move around.

In pairs or individually ask the children: when you are told it’s time for bed what are the usual things you do to get ready? Eg. Having a wash, brushing your teeth, looking at a book, holding your favorite toy.  Ask the children to act out/mime their everyday bedtime routine. If they are in pairs they can take it in turns to watch each other’s routine.

Once they’ve practiced their ‘routine’ a couple of times split the group into two. One half of the group can watch a presentation of the others demonstrating their bedtime routines using the music as a backdrop. Afterwards they could talk about what was similar or different to what they do themselves.

Share and Enjoy
