Toe Wrestling

Activity for two players

This lively game will help your child develop motor skills and balance. It is recommended that one of the players be an older child or adult who can help keep some restraint on the activity.

  1. Both players remove their shoes and socks.
  2. Hold hands and stand facing your child. Place your feet so that your toes are just touching your child's.
