Place a pillow on your child’s head and ask him to walk around the room without dropping it. See how high you can count before it falls. Does it stay on while you pick up toys? Does it stay on while you tie your shoes or wash your hands? Keeping your balance is good for the posture and can be a lot of fun together, too!

Play this classic game with your child. First, you lead, then she leads. Be creative. Go under a table, around the cat, over the toys. You will notice more and more how they watch every move you make and do things just like you–even after the game is over!
You don’t even need a rope to jump. Just place a line of tape or string on the floor. Have your child jump over it. Front to back. Side to Side. Hop on one foot. Move slow, then very fast! As simple as it is, this game will be one they will want to play again!
Could it really be this easy?? Yes, exercise doesn’t have to be complicated. Pretend you and your child are washing machines. Twist your middles and make the “chukka chukka” sound! Go in a circle, then roll over and over to imitate the dryer! Your kids will remember all the laughter you had together.
On a hot summer day, play catch outside with a soaking wet sponge. You and your little one can cool off while you giggle! Capture a memory today.
In a big open park, have your child yell while running! Tell her she can only yell as long as she can run. A fun way to let off steam! Her voice while she is being active is music to any mom’s ears!
Build a mountain of cushions and pillows on the floor. Have your child spring out from under them with a roar! Add a sheet on top for even more fun. Forts are an age-old imagination builder and a sure fire improvement on boring old toys.
Have your child make letters with his body. For the letter A, put feet apart and clasp hands high above your head. Don’t forget the letter M-for marvelous mom! Laugh together as he learns letters and moves his body to make the shape.
Have your child put her arms straight out like she’s a giant T. Have her twist her middle and swing her arms left then right. Do 20X! Tell her all the things you love about her as she swings and twists, and watch her confidence grow.
Every time a TV commercial shows food, have your child jump off the couch and make her legs go crazy till it’s over! Jump, run, spin, twirl, leap, dance, skip! Mom, it’s all about that crazy little thing called love.
