A balloon floats up and away into the air but has to come down at some point. At the playground, one child on a seesaw goes up, while the other moves downwards to the ground. While the concept of «up» and «down» may seem elementary to parents, toddlers are just learning how to describe these movements. Reinforce this language with your child to build a foundation for future learning. Use this vividly illustrated worksheet from Kids Academy to teach your child the words up and down!
