Improve movement skills
Any activity you can do safely with your child is good for their healthy growth and development, and building a lifelong love of physical activity. Try to cut down on the time that your baby, toddler or preschooler spends being sedentary (e.g. sitting in an infant seat or playpen) when they are awake.
Create a safe place for play
Put a blanket on the floor and play with your baby
Play music and learn action songs together
Dress for the weather and play outdoors
