As your kid develops his mind and body, a good portion of his time should be spent on physical activity and play. This will help to develop his physique, strength and bone structure. Playing sports is a great way to engage your kid.

Encourage your child in a variety of outdoor sports which in turn will help him to enhance his physical abilities. You can start off with simple easy things like just kicking a ball around in the park, or taking turns to hit a soft ball with a plastic bat. As your kid grows older, you can enrol him in sports classes depending on what sport he enjoys.

Sports and other activities should be such that emphasis is given on enjoyment rather than winning. Even if he loses, he should take it as a learning to do better next time. You can also enrol your kid in team sports like basketball. Such sports will also help in developing a team spirit in your child.
