Buddy, like most toddlers, loves to move! His energy is limitless and he is happiest when he is running, jumping, climbing or throwing. Now that we are in the depths of winter, it has been fun to find indoor gross motor activities for Buddy to enjoy! We love all of these activities. They get Buddy moving, they use up lots of his energy and guarantee a good nap time!
