Health Tip: Enjoy Screen-Free Fun With Your Preschooler

Activities to get creativity flowing

(HealthDay News) -- Your preschooler needs lots of creative time for healthy growth and development -- including limited screen time.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:

  • Play classic kids games such as the limbo, "London bridges falling down," and "duck, duck, goose."
  • Have an (hardboiled) egg and spoon race.
  • Play "Simon says" and "head, shoulders, knees and toes."
  • Head out for a nature walk.
  • Start a game of "follow the leader."
  • Play a game of "tag."
