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.
Picking up small objects: Use rice and lentils and invite the children to pick them up with their fingers or sort them into groups. Encourage your child to develop a wide range of movement skills – for example using a climbing frame, riding a bike, playing in water.
Activity does not need to take place all at once – short sessions of 10 to 15 minutes can be built up over the day. At least one hour of activity should be structured and energetic, for example, swimming or playing a game of chase.
