At this stage, your kiddo's muscles are still refining and his motor skills are still strengthening. Playing and physical activities are the key for your kid at this age to develop their motor skills. The interaction that goes along with it helps them to be better at socializing, speech and language skills.
What you need to know
Party games help them to interact with groups of kids their age outside of their regular friends’ circle so it teaches them to socialize. Physical activities build their strength, coordination and confidence, improve their health and self-esteem. Though admitting your kid to physical activity classes like football, throw-ball, volley ball, skating and swimming helps, it has to be according to the kid’s interest rather than the parents.
And it also should not be a burden but a fun activity for them to unwind their mind from academics as well as get some exercise out of it.
Suitable physical activities
Alone time/free time for themselves is also a great way for the kid this age to burn more calories and have fun. Engaging your kids in regular sports help them to understand sportsmanship, experience challenges, setting up goals. Non-competitive activities or sports are best suited for kids this age though some kids prefer to be in organized sports teams. 7-8 year old kids prefer to have their choices in the sports they choose – traditional and non-traditional. Either way is fine as long as they get enough time to be active.
