Here at Rainbow Child Care Centers we know the importance of staying active! We encourage your child to keep moving through our Ready! Set! GROW! Fit Foundations program and by making sure your child has plenty of opportunities to practice both their fine and gross-motor skills. As a parent and as our partner it is important for you to encourage your child to keep moving at home too! With winter fast approaching we know that outdoor play time can become limited due to weather conditions and dwindling daylight. Here are some ideas to help you and your child stay active, even if you need to stay indoors:
Don’t let winter be an excuse to not be active. Brainstorm with your child to come up with other fun ideas that you can do. Create a list or a calendar and set a goal to do one physical activity with your child every day. The activity doesn’t have to take long, the important thing is that you are doing something active together. By participating with your child you will create great memories while helping them build good habits and develop their fine and gross-motor skills!
