Physical Literacy | Rolling Downhill

TIME: 10 Minutes

AGES: 3 – 6

  • Small hill or incline outdoors covered in soft, dry grass


  1. Get your child to stretch out at the top of a small grass hill, arms above head
  2. Encourage your child to roll down the hill like a log

This activity develops body proprioception and balance as kids roll because they learn how to differentiate up from down during movement
