Climbing, Sliding, Dancing And Singing: Your 5 year Old's Physical Milestones!

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

Woo hoo! It's time to rejoice because your sweetheart has reached some invaluable milestones at this stage! Kids fall, but they get back up again. Perhaps that’s why a child who used to walk like a duck, flapping their feet so cutely, can now walk straight, even run! Children experience several developmental milestones when they are 5 or 6 years old.

Several physical developments

One such development is seen on the physical front. Not only do they grow tall, lean and gain weight, they even learn physical skills- something that they are usually proud of! Now is the time when they learn to hold a lemon on a spoon and run 100 meters without letting that spoon fall. A five year old basically enjoys being active and needs more than mere walking to develop their gross motor skills.



    For instance, they are great at climbing, sliding and swinging and dancing- the skills they can develop or nurture over the next few years. They can even learn to skip and stand on one foot for a short period of time. In fact, you can watch them hopping forward one each foot separately! Another development is their growing control on writing and drawing, staying in the lines while coloring. So, these are the development milestones your child will experience.
