The goal of this week is to practice your wheelbarrow walking so you can get to work around the farm!
Growing My Skills
Set up puzzle pieces and a puzzle board, pretend food and a basket, or small toys and a house so your child knows how many trials are expected and then can use their wheelbarrow (put in their or your pocket) to move them across a distance.
The goal is for your child to use flat hands, straight arms, and a flat back while moving forward with their head up looking ahead.
The closer to the ankles you hold your child, the more challenging; the closer to the belly you hold your child, the less challenging.
You can start off by holding your child at their hips, then at their thighs, then their knees, then their shins, and finally their ankles for a full wheelbarrow.
