CRAWL­ING!

Walk Like a Wheel­bar­row

Help your tod­dler lie on her stom­ach. Show her how to raise her­self up with her hands into a push-up po­si­tion, then hold her by the knees. Prompt her to take sev­eral “steps” by walk­ing with her hands. A fun way to mo­ti­vate her to move for­ward: Place a fa­vorite stuffed an­i­mal 3 or 4 feet in front of her.

Get Down on All Fours

Try in­ter­ac­tive games that in­volve crawl­ing on hands and knees. Have races to re­trieve a toy from across the room, or con­struct an ob­sta­cle
