Gross Motor Skill Development

I had aspirations of many art projects this week but what transpired was not at all artful. Instead we spent much of the week developing gross motor skills- those large muscles of the body responsible for head control, rolling over, sitting up, crawling,

climbing up stairs Up…

and climbing and Down  (he must have climbed these stairs 50 times),

Jumping,

Climbing ladders,

Riding horses,

 Jumping into the pool (my personal favorite),

And stealing golfcarts

If you are looking for other activities to help develop this oh-so-important group of muscles the Toddler Station has some good ideas!

Hope you have a fantabulous week!!
