Activity 55 – Move and dancing to music in your own special way!
Age Range – Preschool and Up
Area Being Developed – Motor Skills
Play your favorite child music and dance, dance, dance! Feel free to copy each other, do different steps, or enjoy being dance partners.
How easy is this! Exercise, fun, and creativity all rolled into one! In addition, if some of your music has simple clear words, sing along and encourage your child to join you. Research tells us that singing is one of the best vehicles for stimulating language in young children.

Any outlets you can give your children for burning up energy in a positive way reduces the likelihood of their acting out and burning it up negatively!
