Gross Motor Skills

Exercise in the Name of Play

Using large muscle groups through play is beneficial for children of all ages.

Active play encourages gross motor skill development in children of all ages! Climbing, jumping, sliding, and running uses large muscle groups in their legs, arms, and core. It’s also a great way to burn off excess energy—which kids have a lot of!


Gross motor skills help children develop better coordination, balance, and overall strength. It’s also a great way to encourage a healthy lifestyle later in life! So, get your little ones active and playing!
