Here’s some fun activities to get your kids up and moving (I’m sure you’ve watched all your Christmas movies at least once by now!). Ideas are taken from The Activity Book. Get yourself a copy for hours of fun!
- Find that Sound (8 months+): For this game, hide a musical toy while your child isn’t looking and then let her use her ears to discover the toy.
- Pillow Walk: Throughout the room, pile bed pillows and sofa cushions around the floor. Have your child jump from pillow to pillow to cross the room. Have them rearrange the pillows and do it again.
- Under and Over (18mo+): Play follow the leader (you!) throughout the house, taking care to climb over and under things to help develop large muscle coordination.
Stay tuned for more fun!
