1. Have your child sit in a criss-cross position. If they cannot fully get in this position, have them sit with their feet farther out in front of their body.
2. Your child can work on ankle and leg flexibility with sit to stand movements from chair. Have them start with feet flat. Try to have them stand up by bending slightly forward and keeping feet flat and knees going over toes. Have them stand as straight as they can. If needed, they can do this at a table with their hands on table for support or balance. Just make sure they have room to stand up fully.
3. Your child can do squats for flexibility. They can use a table or chair for support and squat part way down as shown below on the left. Have them focus on keeping feet flat and make sure their knees do not go in front of their toes. If they can, they can do a full squat like below on the right. Again, focus on keeping feet as flat as possible.
4. Your child can do bear walks. Have them start in the position below, keeping knees as straight as possible, and have them move forward, moving one arm and leg at a time.
5. Your child can also stretch their legs and ankles in half kneel. They can do this at a couch or other stable object if needed for balance. Focus on keeping front foot flat. They can reach for objects in this position as well. Have them do this on both sides, once with the left foot in front and once with the right foot in front.
