Young children learn new skills when they are active! The first five years of a child’s life are all about helping him understand what his body can do and developing basic physical skills. With obesity levels growing in young children, parents and caregivers need accurate and straightforward information to better equip them with strategies to get children moving and physically active. The Moving Matters series is a collection of easy ideas and activities to assist parents and teachers in helping children develop the base of physical skills they need to be active for a lifetime.
Babies are naturally active, and their movements help them explore their environment. You can encourage their muscle development, strength and balance with these simple activities done with infants as young as six weeks old.
