Dancing Feet

Toddler Playtime

Sing, or turn on music, and dance with your child! See if they can copy what you do with your feet. Try stomping one foot three times. What do they do? Copy their moves and build on them by adding a jump or going on tiptoe. Do they do it too? Keep the dance going!

See what your child is learning

This kind of conversation with movement is one way for your child to learn about the importance of listening and responding when interacting with others. They’re also practicing the life skills of focus and self-control as they copy your actions.
