Keep Moving!

January 02, 2018

It is important to start healthy habits early and to encourage physical activity daily.  One of the easiest ways to keep your little one active is by making play time, active time!

Limit screen time at home and encourage games and activities that you can engage in with your toddler such as dancing, yoga, or going on walks. Demonstrating these habits early helps to lay the foundation for an active and healthy life.

Invite them to act out the characters and scenes of their favorite book as you read together.  You can even set up an obstacle course or scavenger hunt inside to keep them moving. Get creative on the different movement activities you do at home.

Providing these opportunities allows them to practice their gross-motor and fine-motor skills which is important for their overall development.
