Toddlers love to jump but usually need help finding out where to do it safely. This activity challenges your child to think before moving. Tape down a square on the floor and encourage jumping just inside of it.
- Tape down two lines that are 10 to 12 feet apart and challenge your toddler to run back and forth, putting both feet on a line before returning to the other.
- Tape a small square and have your toddler jump inside and outside of it.
- Let your toddler show you where to put 2 pieces of tape for both of you to run between.
