Freeze Game

Freeze Game:

Skills Practiced:

  • Self regulation skills by starting and stopping
  • How to follow directions
  • Getting exercise

Materials Needed:

  • Music that can be stopped at random, unpredictable times
  • Cards with “freeze” position cards


  • Teacher holds up a position card while the music is playing
  • The children ignore the position card and dance to the song
  • Children stop dancing and “freeze” in the position of the card when the music stops

How the Freeze Dance May Change Over Time:

  • Teachers can have children freeze in poses with a buddy.
  • Teachers can play music that challenges children’s executive functions auditory (i.e., play song that has words that rhyme with “freeze”).
  • Teachers can use red and green cards to challenge children’s executive functions visually.
