Active, Coordinated Movement

Hippity Hop! Your Child is Learning to Jump and Balance

At this age, your child's balance skills are improving greatly. He can stand on one foot for a few seconds, as well as hop on one foot. It's good to encourage activities that promote balance, as that will help him be more successful at sports, as well as everyday activities, with better posture and fewer back problems. Balancing and jumping also help keep your child mentally alert and sharpen the body system that develops spatial awareness. So try out some balance activities today!

Has your child achieved the following Active, Coordinate Movement milestones yet? If yes, check off all of the skill(s) he has already mastered to date.
