By three, your child is mastering all kinds of new physical skills that seemed impossible just a few short months ago. He or she can probably stand on tiptoe quite easily, and may also be able to skip, and even ride a tricycle. Your child probably balances on one food, and can run, jump and do all kinds of other fun things.
The best way to ensure that your child’s physical development and gross motor skills stay on track is to make sure that he or she gets plenty of unstructured play. Join in yourself, either by challenging your child to try new things, or by trying them yourself, and letting your child copy you. This kind of play is fun for everyone, gives you some exercise, and helps to develop your three year olds physical ability.
