Sing and Dance Together
We all know gross motor movement is important for development, but when kids move to music, they are getting so much more than just fun and exercise. Children are learning new things with their bodies within different spaces. They are developing their coordination, balance, concentration, cognitive abilities and self-expression.
By practising coordinated movement to music, they will develop parts of the brain that will help them to speak, read, write and play instruments. But the best part is that these activities will bring such a great deal of enjoyment!
Try out our favourite songs for Gross Motor Movement and let them jump, bounce and skip and hop to their hearts delight!

· Heads, shoulders, knees and toes
