Hop, Toss, Shake, Wiggle
Get up moving with your child.Games like hopscotch will get children’s brains and bodies moving. Throw a stone onto the stencil painted on the trail. Jump from square to square, skipping the square where the stone landed.

Learn, Watch, Stop, Play
Let your child lead the way. When you follow a child’s lead, his or her curiosity and confidence grow. Watch what your child likes to do. Is he or she playing with other children, following the bugs on the ground or heading for the slide?

Describe, Compare, Learn
Turn simple ideas into learning games. Looking at the world in a new way helps children get ready for reading and math. Look at the shapes on the ground. Ask your child how they are the same and how they are different? Look for other things near the trail with the same shape.

Jump, Clap, Skip, Move
Get your child up and active. Physical activity exercises a child’s body and mind. Pretend to move like an animal. Walk like a duck or jump like a frog. Walk backwards or skip. Can your child do the same thing?
