You might be thinking of making your toddler try sports straight, but first, think carefully. Yes, kids at toddler stage are beginning to develop a lot of movements and basic skills already, but consider the adequacy of their strength and development of body systems. In coming up with toddler sports ideas, it is crucial to see if the activities they do are age-appropriate.

You can start with just these basic activities or easier versions of real sports. These are physically beneficial activities—or mini-sports for toddlers—yet brain-stimulating too. These simple and moderate activities can serve as practice and will prepare your child’s skills and thinking process to become more equipped for the real sports as they grow more.

BIKING/CYCLING

BIKING/CYCLING

Biking is one of the most common activities that children first learn growing up. Your little toddler might not yet be that strong to go on pedaling through long distances, but at this current stage, his/her sense in direction and balance is already being practiced through the mind processing this activity requires.

SWIMMING

Let your child try swimming too! You can have a family outing at the beach, or the pool, and even just at your garden with just an inflatable pool. This can help in mind and body coordination, so this is beneficial for both mental and physical health.
 
SUPERHERO/ROLEPLAY

SUPERHERO/ROLEPLAY

Wake up to a red cape flying in front of you as your child plays superhero ready to save the world. Role-playing can help your child widen his/her imagination. Don’t worry mommies, you don’t need to give birth to a baby with a cape. Because superheroes aren’t born, they’re made. So, do let your kiddo try toddler games like this!

DANCING

DANCING

Dancing requires good mental functioning. Making moves be coordinated to music is basically stimulating to a child’s brain. It’s also a delightful exercise for your kid’s creativity because even though he/she won’t still be able to follow Thriller or Moonwalk dance steps, he/she can make his/her own! That’s even better!

OUTDOOR PLAY AND CAMPING

OUTDOOR PLAY AND CAMPING

The best thing about this is integration with nature. A child’s mind can be greatly filled with wonder and interest to discover, being disconnected to the fast-pace and technology-filled kind of life and rather be connected to nature which activates all the five senses. It’s important for a child to learn to appreciate his/her surroundings and experience natural creative play.
