Active, Coordinated Movement, Physical Exercise
Physical Activity, Every Day!
Exercise is as important for your toddler as it is for you. Current recommendations are 30 minutes of structured activity and 60 minutes of unstructured activity daily. Structured activity doesn't mean signing your child up for classes; it can be as simple as playing catch together. As for unstructured activity, give him some direction and then let his imagination take over. Perhaps he could explore the backyard, digging for worms, climbing a jungle gym, or building a castle in the sandbox. Or maybe this is the time to give his doll a walk in the stroller or take his animal friends on a ride in his wagon. The sky's the limit!
