It is also important how the child moves on ice. The steps should not be sweeping, and the center of gravity should not be shifted too far forward or backward. Show the kid how the penguins move, ask him to repeat it, turn it into a kind of game.

The child should not keep his hands in his pockets, let them hang freely along the body, because the hands are our instrument in order to maintain balance.
