Games and Activities for Preschoolers
Games keep your preschoolers entertained and stimulates physical, emotional and social development. Encourage your little one to take part in activities or arrange fun physical activities at home to establish a good physical activity routine for them to continue in the future.
What sports and activities should my preschooler take part in?
Use your 2 year old’s boundless energy in activities that encourage gross motor skills, such as running, or catching and throwing. You may want to consider signing up for a preschooler gymnastics class, or a group dance class.
At 2-3 years old, your little ones are jumping, running, kicking, throwing and reaching more, which is the perfect time to encourage more developed coordination through organised classes such as ballet or toddler tennis.
At 3-3 ½ years old, interaction with other toddlers teaches your little one important social skills. Encourage this social development by providing physical activities in a social environment, such as active playdates.
At 4 years old, your little one is beginning to understand the difference between playing alone and playing with others. Let them play for a school soccer team or running club to learn the value of teamwork.
