For some kids, mastering this simple little flip comes naturally…and for other kids, it’s not so simple.
They also have to exert enough leg strength to push themselves off and get the momentum they need to make it all the way up and over!
Finally, good balance helps them keep their bodies centered during the somersault so they don’t roll off to one side or the other. Speaking of balance – here’s a great example of a 3 Point Tip Up (one of the exercises on the printable). Whew! Who knew so much went into a simple forward roll?
Help your little one work up to this skill with this free printable 10-day workout. Each day, your child can complete the fun and simple activities or exercises, getting him closer and closer to her goal!
Simply print off the workout and get started! You can use the first printable sheet as your guide, or cut out the larger circles on pages 2 and 3, punch a hole in the top of each, and put them on a ring to bring with you on the go!
