We hope you enjoyed National Feet Week on the week starting 8th March! If so, let’s celebrate our fabulous feet with some barefoot fun! Here are some great ideas that will help to develop and strengthen your little one’s feet, ankles and lower legs. First, why not try ‘Toe Tug-of-War’? All you need to do is sit on the floor, facing your little one with legs outstretched. Then, place a towel, t-shirt or piece of fabric between you both and encourage your little one to curl their toes around it. Finally, using only your toes to hold your end, pull and tug until one of you lets go.
The ‘Tootsie Challenge’ is fun too! Encourage your little one to collect some hard and soft objects, not too big or heavy as they are going to be picking them up with their toes. Then, spread them on the ground next to an empty box. Finally, the two of you and any other family members pick up and drop as many of the objects as they can into the box using only their toes.
