Crab walk is a fun activity that also helps kids build their core and arm strength.

Start by teaching your kids how to perform this movement (torso and tummy up while moving using hands and feet on the ground with legs bent at the knees). Then, set up fun challenges for your kids to do moving in this pose.

Some ideas include:

Balancing act: Have kids balance items (such as a stuffed animal or a plastic cup) on their stomach and see who can go the furthest without dropping it. Alternatively, see how many stuffed animals your child can balance on their belly as they hold this pose.

Obstacle course: Set up an obstacle course for kids to navigate in crab crawl.

Race: Ready, set, crab crawl to the finish line!
