Physical fitness should start early, so here are a few exercises disguised as play that you can do with children as young as two years.
· Ball walk. Find a small bouncy ball, and have your child hold it between his or her knees. Then challenge the child to walk farther and farther without dropping it.
· Giant walking. Have your child take the longest step he or she can, then stop for a moment all stretched out. Then have the child stand up straight and take a giant step with the other foot. Try giant walking all the way to the car or the park.
· Wall taps. Place small dot on the wall. Challenge your child to stretch up to it. Also move it higher and challenge them to jump up to it. Monitor them so they don’t crash into the wall!
