One of the most fun ways to help kids practice following directions and listening is by playing games. We love to move and learn here so I found 6 following directions games that get kids up and moving!
Following Directions and Listening Practice Games:
- Teach Kids to Follow Directions with Relay Races from Coffee Cups and Crayons
- Following Directions Grid Game from Kids Activities Blog
- 5 Playful Ways to Work on Listening and Following Directions from Playing with Words 365
- Following Directions and Listening Game: Teacher Says! from Coffee Cups and Crayons

Following directions is a life skill that kids are expected to have in school, but one that needs frequent practice even as kids get older. Turning that practice into a game makes it fun and is a great way to turn listening and following directions into a habit!
