Traffic light games; Either running, skipping cycling or scooting have the children enjoy moving around the garden.  When you shout red, they must all stop, orange is to get ready and green to go, go, go.  This supports the children learning their traffic lights meaning whilst getting some much-enjoyed exercise.
