Ask your child, “Can you do what I do” Walk forward or backward, bend down, or reach up high. Talk with them about what you’re doing like, “Touch your toes and touch the sky” Then give them a turn to lead. Change the game and see if they can do the opposite of what you do.
See what your child is learning
When your child follows your actions, they learn ideas like up and down by doing them with their body. When you change the game, you challenge them to use self-control to stay focused and not go on autopilot. These are important skills for learning now and in the future.
