Skating



bird skating














This roller skating bird  again demonstrates very good bilateral
coordination as he alternates moving his left and right sides
forward to skate. He looked relatively stable and did not do anything
other than skate forward. But still that is impressive!

Human children who have good balance and coordination may
be able to learn how to skate once they are steady on their feet at
around 2-3 years of age.
 
Parents may try giving them a box to hold onto and push while on
the ice, giving more stability and something to hold onto.
