Movement is a powerful way for kids to play! Movement can calm kids, help them get rid of excess energy, or energize them. When children are starting to get antsy or irritable, often a change of scenery and a little movement can help.

Research on physical play shows that movement can re-energize and reset a child’s nervous system. This reset means that they are more able to concentrate on challenging tasks, which is incredible!

Listen to the podcast to hear about some resources that you can use to incorporate movement into the day.
