Keep it Moving

For ages 0 – 8 years

Roll, jump, crawl, climb, throw, hop – there are lots of fun ways for kids to move!

Being active is particularly important when kids are young. 

Movement helps to build the coordination, muscles and balance children need to set them up for life.

All kinds of activities help kids develop movement skills including:

  • Climbing at a playground
  • Balancing on a log in the bush
  • Throwing and catching a ball
  • Rolling down a hill

 These skills are often called gross motor skills.

You can encourage your kids to be active by setting up games.  Can you hop over the skipping rope and crawl under the chair?

We’ve got some great ideas to keep you and your children moving in the videos below.
