Hello... i have a 4 year old girl. and lately she doesn't like to move around and play much. most of the time she is either sitting down or painting something. even few months ago she used to play all day, run and jump. she doesn't like to go out much and believe me i can't take her out, unless she wants to. my question to you is how can i help her to move around more. what types of house activities i can do with her. this is my first baby and i don't have family members to help me. i am single mom, so its worries me a lot about her health. thank you.

We play a silly bug game. I say "Can you....fly like a butterfly? Buzz like a bee? Roll like a roly poly? Crawl like a spider? Jump like a grasshopper? Wiggle like a caterpillar?" After each "Can you.....?" we both act really silly trying to crawl like spiders or jump like a grasshopper, etc. My toddler loves it. When he gets restless it burns off a lot of steam.

You could also try action songs. "My God is so BIG", "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", "The Wheels on the Bus", and so on. Or just play music and dance silly together. We're jammin' out to Christmas tunes right now. :)
