Do more with their legs and balance well
As a parent, the first thing you might notice in the physical milestones of a preschooler is that they are better with their legs now. They can run easily, climb well, and pedal a 3-wheeled bike. Moreover, they have pretty much mastered climbing up and down the stairs using one foot on each step.
Eventually, at 4 years old, they might be able to hop on one foot and balance for about 2 seconds. By 5, they can jump and balance on one foot for about 10 seconds or longer.
Engage in arts and crafts better
At 3 years old, your child may be able to copy a circle using a pencil or crayon. However, don’t expect that they’ll hold it correctly just yet.
At 4, they might be able to hold it correctly, but it’s possible that they may need more practice. From simply copying a circle, they will eventually draw shapes and persons with several parts. Afterward, they begin writing letters and numbers. Preschoolers can now also use scissors under supervision.
For these reasons, arts and crafts are great for the growth and development of a preschooler. Additionally, handedness is established during this stage. If your child prefers to use their left hand, please don’t try to “correct” the situation.
