Red Head Baby playing with a ball

Physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle for children of all ages. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) suggests that infants get at least 30 minutes of physical activity per day and toddlers get at least 3 hours of physical activity per day.

 

This can include tummy time, walks, running around, and using bikes.

 

The benefits go beyond just the physical; it can also help with social, cognitive, and emotional development.

 

Through physical activity, children can learn how to interact with peers, focus on tasks, and develop self-confidence.

So take a walk, roll a ball or try our fun theme-based activities with your little bundle of joy!
