During bath time, encourage your toddler to splash in the water by kicking their legs. Have your toddler kick as they sit or recline in the bathtub. (Support their head when necessary.) Encourage your toddler to splash with their hands by pushing the water with their hands as paddles. This activity is great for leg coordination, strength, and gross motor control in the lower body and can be transferred into activities such as soccer, swimming and martial arts when they get older.
