Here’s an activity to help your child know that “If you keep trying, you’ll get better!”
Walking on a tightrope takes a lot of confidence, concentration, coordination, and practice. Tightrope walkers have to keep on trying for a long time before they become good at their craft.
Have you ever seen a tightrope walker at the circus? Make a “tightrope” by taping a piece of masking tape on the floor. Even a piece of string will do. Show your child how to walk on the tightrope by placing one foot in front of the other, heel to toe – that’s the way real tightrope walkers walk. At first your child might even need to hold your hand.
