Physical Development:

Practice jumping with two feet together like a kangaroo. Perhaps you could put some low obstacles on the ground to jump over.


Did you know a kangaroo moves forward a distance of 2 meters (6'6'') with each jump. However, when fleeing from a predator on flat ground without any obstacles, a single jump is able to cover a distance of 9 meters (almost 30 feet)! Kangaroo jumps can reach a height of 3 meters (9'10''), resulting in a sight like no other.
