    These look like a fun activity to use during sport time, or even as a brain break type of activity in the classroom. Thank you!

    I spent much time searching for P E for kindergarten, found this site, but learned I could not print, without paying $10/month. Your site stated, “free”. Great site, but disappointed. I have no need to use on a monthly basis.
