30+ | Hopping to the Beat


Turn on some music and face your little one toward you. Count 1-2-3 along with the beat of the music and invite your baby to hop on on the third beat. If your little one doesn’t jump right in, show them how to do it, and slowly they will start to imitate your moves. Continue the pattern--hopping every third beat--for the duration of the song.

The Science

This fun and playful exercise helps your young toddler develop their sense of self-awareness and self-trust, while also building gross motor skills and proprioception.
