Glide, Slide, Jump, and Play! 

When your child learns to master movement skills on ice and snow, it opens up a new world of fun for the whole family.  The trick is building on the foundation of movement skills already learned on solid ground.  If your kids can run, hop, throw, catch, jump, and balance in various ways, then they can learn to push, glide, and stop on ice, as well as slide, jump, and climb in snow.
