When an adventurous spirit becomes a new parent they often worry that they’ll no longer be able to get adventure like they used to. I’m here to tell you that that’s wrong! All children develop at their own rate but as time passes they will in turn hit certain milestones that deem them capable of new and exciting activities.
Just imagine the first year of their life, from rolling over to learning to sit up and crawl around. Before you know it you're jumping headfirst into the toddler years when they learn to pull themselves up, walk around, attempt to dance, and climbing on practically everything in sight. Oh but it doesn't stop there! It only gets more intimidating as they enter their preschooler years. They learn to run and jump without losing their balance, and they can now dip, duck and dodge-making the game of tag a daily routine. Once they hit five years old they are considered a big kid, capable of joining you on many of your adventures and learning the ropes one step at a time.
If you’re unsure about what activities your child is ready for then this guide will give you an idea of the safe things to do as your child grows and develops over the years.
