Stand On One Foot for 5-10 Seconds

  • Practice standing on one foot, and invite your child to try it. Time yourselves. How many seconds can you stand on one foot?
  • Include standing on one foot as a direction in games such as Follow The Leader, Mother May I, and Simon Says.

Walk Backwards for Five Feet

  • Take a backwards walk!  When you are out walking, turn around and walk backwards. Your child may think that’s pretty funny. Show your child how to walk backwards. See how far you can walk that way.
  • Play Forward-Backward. Take 5 steps forward and 2 steps back. Then take 10 steps forward 4 steps backward. Let your child suggest how many steps to take forward and backward.
  • Walk backward up a hill.  It’s fun!
  • Walk backwards in direction games such as Mother May I, Follow The Leader, and Simon Says.
