From learning to walk to riding a bike, each child will be different. Between the ages of 1 and 2 a child will normally be walking, pulling themselves up on furniture and pulling/pushing toys. Aged 2 to 3 years they will learn how to hold a pencil in the correct way and turn marks on paper into scribbles, towers will be built with bricks and balls will be kicked. As they go from 3 years to 7 years their physical skills are normally improving and they are becoming more confident, climbing, running and jumping. Also dressing themselves becomes an easier task.
