Children aged 18 to 24 months should spend as little time as possible in front of a screen. Those aged between 2 and 5 should spend no more than 1 hour a day. Any cut-and-paste craft can be a fun way to improve fine motor skills so tailor projects to your monthly theme or unit, and let your imagination be your guide. Butt Kicks: Like high knees in reverse. Exaggerate your steps in jogging by reaching your foot toward your rear end (sometimes easier to do when jogging in place). You can help your children or any children you look after to be active.
Puzzles: Puzzles are a great way to encourage eye/hand coordination. As a plus, the basic ones can be introduced at a very young age. Gradually increase the difficulty of the puzzles, so children are never bored. Stringing beads: Stringing objects develops eye/hand coordination and fine motor control. Wrap tape around one end of a piece of string to make a ”needle” and let children string beads to make their own necklaces.
Get active yourself – children learn through example and are 5 times more likely to be active if their parents are. You can also switch the first two numbers, using the commutative property of addition, and still get the same answer.
