Clap your hands and ask your child to stop and freeze in a pose when you stop clapping. When you begin clapping again, they should move, then stop in a different pose when the clapping stops. First, clap slowly. Then get faster so they have to keep changing poses. Take turns, letting them be the clapper while you pose.

You’re helping your child think on their feet and not go on autopilot by changing positions in response to your clapping. They must pay attention and use self-control to stop and go, while also remembering what poses they have already used.
