The healthy growth of organs, muscles and bones.
IF YOU ONLY REMEMBER ONE THING, MAKE IT THIS:
Toddlers and preschoolers need to
run around, play and be noisy!
Babies and children learn about the world, and the things around them, by moving.
- When your baby plays with her hands, or holds up her head she’s learning!
- The muscles that help children run, jump and play are called “large motor muscles.” They develop first!
- The muscles that help children pick up small objects (like a piece of lint) are called “small motor muscles.” These muscles develop later.
