Gross Motor Activity: Can You Move Like Baby Does?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huggies®.


 

Have you ever watched the movement of a baby? Its a gross motor activity itself!

Watch the poses that they do! They sure don’t move much, but what they can do is quite impressive and I could never do it myself anymore.

With a baby in the house, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with Huggies as a Huggies® Tester [you can be a Huggies® Tester too and get coupons and rewards] and share with you how well Huggies holds up to the test of a moving baby!

Seriously though, about those baby poses, could you lay on your back and hold your feet in the air for 20 minutes?

Or kick constantly for the same amount of time? Not just lazy kicking either, excited kicks!

It made me think that these poses and movements that Louis has been doing would be a good gross motor activity for the older boys…. just to see if they were able to do it. When do they lose that flexibility? Plus it was good for some giggles!

It was also fun to see if they were able to replicate a position just by looking at it, without being told what to do.

For example, Louis has recently found his toes and constantly grabs them and holds on to them.

This is by far my favorite ‘yoga’ pose that he does. Thankfully, Huggies® Snug & Dry Diapers have a NEW SureFit* Design that has a flexible waistband to withstand these sort of movements! I can’t wait to see what positions he gets into when he starts rolling, scooting and crawling, and I have no doubt that these diapers will hold up!

For a fun gross motor activity & some giggles :

I had the boys lay down next to Louis to see if they could do the same thing he does.

It was hilarious!

It would be even more hilarious if you have a baby just slightly on the move! All Louis really did was grab his toes and kick, kick, kick!

And that was hilarious to watch the older boys try to do it too. There were lots of giggles!
