Invite your child to have a “Fast-Slow Race.” Find a starting line and count out loud together, “one, two, three,” then go! As you get going, call out “slow.” Can they adjust their speed? Give them a turn calling out “fast” or “slow.” How fast can you go? How slow?

During a “Fast-Slow Race,” your child is practicing listening to directions and responding as the game changes. These skills will help them manage feelings and actions, now and in the future.
