How can I get my 3 year daughter to improve her large motor skills?



Answers:
large motor skills are improved by doing large motor skills activities.
Take her to the park, let her climb and play on the equipment.
throw a ball with her, have her kick it
have a race, take her swimming, etc.
you need to get up and be active is to work large motor skills.
Like the person before me said practice is the number on factor. If you have a decent park and rec department where you live you can also look at enrolling in mommy and me courses with music and movement or now they even have gymnastics for preschoolers that is really good movement classes that work on many gross motor skills. Also get a copy of a developmental checklist. That will give you ideas of other activities you can do. Things you might see are climbing stairs switching feet, riding a tricycle, walking on a balance beam, jumping forward, hopping on one foot, balancing on one foot, throwing and catching a ball, bouncing a ball, running, skipping. Swimming is another great activity.
Practice. Provide things like a soccer ball, basketball, a place to run, tricycle, or a jungle gym.
Buy her active play toys! Large balls, target/goal games, use stairs for games - carefully.etc. You should probably do these things with her too. Jump and have her jusmp, run and have her run. A tunnel can be good, too, and a trampoline- even a small one. Good luck.
Large Motor skills are using your arms and legs to maneuver them effectively, ex- walking across a low balance beam provides balance, running, kicking, riding bicycles, climbing, jumping, walking, catching. swinging.
Take her to the playground/park and let her have fun-don't make it a task/job for her just let her enjoy playing- the experience is the key method of all teaching. When children/adults are given experience in any area they are learning. Take a walk in the neighborhood, look at the changes in nature, play ring around the rosie. Just remember to keep it fun for her.
Most have the right idea. The best way is to make her use them. Go up and down stairs, a balance beam, peddle a tricycle, play ball, run, jump, etc.

~Play simon says
~Make a hop Scotch game and play with her (not by the rules obviously)
~go to the park more often encourage more than just swinging
~by one of those hop balls (you sit on them and bounce around)
~a little trampoline is always fun in a play area
