Play more actively with a ball and jump ropes
Another part of the physical milestones of a preschooler is they can play well with toys such as balls and jump ropes. At 4, they can catch a ball passed or bounced to them. At 5, they can already jump rope.
Since preschoolers tend to be active in playing, take some time to practice these safety rules at home.
Be more independent
And finally, preschool is when they start working on their independence in some tasks such as eating, dressing, and going to the toilet.
At 4 years old, they might be able to pour water in their glass (but maybe with minimal spilling) and mash their food. At 5, they might be able to use utensils.
Starting at 3, they begin dressing themselves until they can work on buttons. At 5, they might be able to tie the laces of their shoes.
During the day, they might manage to go to the toilet on their own.
When checking if your child is hitting the preschooler physical milestones included here, remember that they have their own time doing things. In case they cannot do something at a certain age yet, it doesn’t mean that they have a developmental delay or problem. Perhaps, they just need more time and practice.
If you are worried about the growth and development of your preschooler, consult a pediatrician.
