It’s cold most places in the winter but our kiddos still need to find time to get outside and work on their gross motor play skills so here are some activities you can do with your kids outdoors.
1. Kick and throw a ball outside.
2. Bring a stroller, shopping cart or any pushing toy out for a walk.
3. Draw shapes on the ground with chalk and practice jumping into the shapes. Work on both cognitive and physical development.
4. Explore the outdoors for leaves, rake a pile and work on jumping into them.
5. Head to the playground. Climb the play structures with your child and teach them how to pump their legs on a swing so they can move themselves back and forth.
6. Is it snowing where you are? Get outside and climb up hills to sled down or roll balls to build snowmen.
How cute is Izzy taking Elmo for a walk?
When Izzy is playing outdoors I like to be sure she’s in shoes that will really be developmentally appropriate for her feet.
pediped® footwear has always been a top shoe choice for us and I’m sure you have heard me talk about this company multiple times on my blog and on my other social media channels. Bottom line is they make a good shoe. The shoes are stylish and great for your kids feet. Sorry it’s the birth through five education major in me that makes me obsessed with child development.
There are 3 different types.
Grip ‘n’ Go™ – toddler
Flex® -big kid
Each shoe is specifically engineered to promote healthy foot development. Guys finding good shoes is so important for your children’s feet!
Did you know pediped Originals®, Grip ‘n’ Go™, and Flex® have been officially recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) as being beneficial for children’s growing feet. In fact they were among the first of child footwear to be awarded.

Have fun playing outdoors and keep those tiny feet happy!

With the New Year coming I wanted to write some of my New Years wishes for Isabella in 2017. Do you ever sit and reflect on what you want for your child(ren)? I do, I think about the things I’d like to see her accomplish and how I can help her reach those goals.
Isabella, my busy little Izzy… this New Year I’m hoping you learn more about friendship. You will be turning the big 2 in March! I’m proud of your play skills, even at your first birthday you walked around handing toys to other kids and playing side by side with your guests. This year I hope you find a little more meaning in your friendships and create special bonds with some little toddlers like you. I hope you continue to build on the friendship you have with your father and I. We enjoy playing with you and spending special family time with you.
I also hope you continue to build your ever growing confidence. Dream big dreams, even if it’s just climbing up the slide and making it to the top on your own. Don’t give up and keep that determination that powers you every day. Your determination may make you demanding and sassy at times, but I still love it. Those qualities make you who you are.
Be kind Isabella. I want you to continue to build an understanding of kindness. Sharing is hard, but you do a pretty good job of it for your age. You have a sweet soul and I know this because when you met your Great Grampa Ted you showed him love and jumped in his arms the first day. You knew, this is my Great Grampa and he wants to love on me and spend time with me. Nothing makes a mother happier than seeing their child be kind.
Don’t stop dancing and laughing. You laughter gives your daddy and I so much joy. Keep on giggling and finding happiness in everything you do.
Keep on being you Izzy! My little fashion, Elmo, Mickey, Lolli pop and black bean loving baby!
To all of the parents reading, what are your wishes for your children this year?
