Getting active with your toddler is very simple. Encouraging these gross motor activities will develop your child’s skills and keep exercise pleasurable.

  • Push/Pull and ride on toys are great for busy little people.
  • Walk up and down stairs in your home while holding your toddler’s hand. Counting the stairs adds a bit of fun.
  • Bring a favorite ball to the park. Toss, kick, catch, and roll the ball together.
  • Take a walk in your backyard or neighborhood. For variety try marching, jogging, and walking backwards.

Most importantly, find fun in playing and being active with your toddler.
