Fifteen Ways to Exercise Children’s Coordination Ability

If the baby’s body parts are not well coordinated, it is difficult for him to do one thing well and cultivate his coordination ability. In addition to his feet, he must train his feet and hands.

Hand to hand, foot to shoulder, etc. can use the following exercise methods to develop children’s coordination skills:
