Babies make our world colourful. They are so little yet it seems like they want to do everything adults around them do. It is important that our chiildren learn to grow up strong and healthy, so let’s talk about helping our little ones grow strong musclles.
Between the ages of 1 and 3, toddlers begin strengthening the muscles in their hands and try using the hands in new ways.
To help the process, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:
- Show your child how to fold paper.
- Let your child play with toys that involve putting square pegs into square holes.
- Help your child stack a tower of five-to-six blocks.
- Help the child disassemble toys, then put them back together.
- Let your child use clay to create different shapes.
Do not forget to engage in outdoor games from time to time. A good example would be throwing a light weight ball.
Hope you find this helpful. Do share your own muscle strengthening exercises as well.
