    I think the best ways to encourage their development through physical activity are songs/activities that go hand-in-hand. At my previous facility, I would set the children up for a ‘dance party,’ and the songs I would use had movements that it instructed the children to do to go along with the song. When they would get tired of these instructional songs, I would find kid friendly versions of their favorite songs from the radio and allow them to dance and move freely to the music, so long as they stayed on their x on the floor. This allowed them to release a lot of energy but kept them from injuring each other.
