As parents, we want our kids to grow and develop as normally as possible. And there are fun ways to help them do just that! Take coordination, for example. Helping improve your toddler’s coordination is easy and fun when you know the right kinds of toddler games to play with them. Check out this list of fun toddler games to help improve your toddler’s coordination.
Toddler Games To Improve Coordination
Whether you want to improve balance and coordination, or hand-eye coordination, there are toddler games that do just that. Your toddler won’t even know they’re learning–they’ll only think they’re having tons of fun!
Toddler Games For Better Hand-Eye Coordination
One of the best ways to improve your toddler’s hand-eye coordination is with a button string game. Your toddler also learns more about colors while they exercise those fine motor skills putting colorful buttons on a string.
A busy board is a great way to encourage hand-eye coordination. There’s so much to keep your toddler’s attention that they’ll be busy for quite awhile.
Waiting for a special day to arrive? Help your toddler create a paper chain to mark the days. Making a paper chain challenges those fine motor skills without your toddler realizing it.
A shape sorter is a classic toy toddlers love, and it works well to improve coordination.
Toddler Games To Improve Balance & Coordination
A good old game of soccer is a fun and challenging activity to work on your toddler’s balance and coordination skills. Simply play outside with your toddler, or put him in a little league so he can play with other kids his age.
Set up a simple obstacle course at home, outside or in, and help your toddler conquer it.
Take your toddler to the park, and teach her how to use the slides, climbing ropes and other equipment. It’s all good fun and helps improve their balance and coordination without even thinking about it.
Toddler games are a fun way to improve coordination. Plus, you get to spend time having fun together. Definitely a win-win! While you’re here, check out the fun ways you can help your toddler learn math skills.
