Balance is a tricky thing for a toddler. This one safe way to ease into learning to balance. Just lay a piece of masking tape (or painter’s tape) on the ground and encourage your little one to “walk the line”.
At first, he/she will probably just try to keep one foot on the line while the other one “scoots” beside it. That’s perfectly fine! As your child gets a little older and more comfortable with “the line”, he/she will be able to put one foot in front of the other like on a balance beam.
And, of course, you’ll probably have a little bit of this…
He looks so innocent as he’s attempting to pull up that tape!
