I teach strings, and although I have amazing kids who started at 10-11, they very rarely have the kind of grace and natural fluency in their playing that kids who started at 4-5 do. At risk of arguing with the premise of a question, I'm not sure that there's something inherently special about starting very early at many skills (e.g. So, I think the most general answer to the question is that any sport or activity that has a hard or semi-hard retirement age probably has a big first-mover advantage associated with it.
So what activities, (violin, guitar, tennis etc) should you be learning very early on to have any chance of really excelling at?
I'm not up on the most current early education theory, but I think it's less a question of learning and more a question of exposing. I've heard it said that there are some activities that you don't necessarily need to learn as a child, but that are much harder to learn as an adult because of fear. I watched a video from a golf professional working for titleist, specializing in child development. There is the critical period hypothesis for first language acquisition, which holds that there is a critical period of childhood for the acquisition of the first language.
People think it is easy for kids to learn languages because they don't or can't remember acquisition of their own first language. And, even with our best efforts, they will end up as native speakers with a smaller vocabulary than their English vocabularies. Also, to save on future disappointment, you may wish to consider the premise of your question. As for sports, I would say soccer, although you'd want to teach him real soccer -- dribbling, juggling, how to shoot, crossing, defending, etc. Catching, throwing, puzzles etc are all good points and ones we do but should do more often.
An argument for bilingualism again - your child may not be fluent *now*, but as an adult, a couple of years of early exposure as a young child will make relearning that second language so much easier and faster. There's a music school near us that does a starter course with several instruments so the children rotate through them and afterwards, the teachers recommend what the child seems better at and enjoys. And reading - if your kid enjoys stories, learning to be a good reader early is a real skill.
Swimming: I grew up in the middle of an ocean, and with a bunch of my other friends I'd say a good handful of us are NOT comfortable with swimming. Ask MetaFilter is a question and answer site that covers nearly any question on earth, where members help each other solve problems.
Make-believe play, puzzle, BOX cutting board to catacombs of the xylophone, animals, and the number has been added. We'd like to take advantage of his spongelike brain to expose him to as many different opportunities to learn new things as possible.


I didn't start violin until age eight and performed favorably compared to the kids who started earlier -- but I did start piano at age four and was exposed to music and theory in that way. In fact, it's really hard and children spend all their waking hours acquiring their first language and it still takes years. I'd definitely try to make your child fluent in Spanish, if not some other language, because that will literally open the world up for them.
Two years old may be a bit early, but I think these are great skills to have and will be great outlets for expression.
I can just tell that I move better than most people do and dance moves a lot of people struggle with are easy for me. With regards to swimming, we own a pool and our house is both directly in front of a harbour and very close to the ocean so swimming is a life saving mandatory, he was in the water (and loving it) at 4 weeks old. If you want to be seriously bilingual, you need a parent or caregiver who only speaks in that language, but fun Mandarin lessons a couple of times a week are not a waste at all, even if your kid seems like they're only speaking the basics. My nephew went to a sports camp on the same idea, 12 sports over three months, and they steered him towards soccer and baseball at the end. You can start with simple audiobooks if they're not reading letters, and talk to them about what happened in the story, encourage them to create their own stories, read to them from the newspaper and so on.
I know tons of people that ski (even casually), but few of them learned to ski as an adult.
I don't think I would have pursued it very far but I am not very flexible, and I was always very timid on the monkey bars, etc. I am guessing (based on the face that you're a MeFite) he has or soon will have access to a computer. At the time, speaking of wooden educational toys, only expensive imported goods from Europe. I've seen early footage of Justin Bieber and Tiger Woods showing proficiency at this young age already in their respective fields, it seems like there is an advantage to seeing if your child shows talent even at that stage. When little kids fall down, they go down like an overcooked noodle and get right back up again.
Catching is hand-eye coordination which comes into play in many many skills your kid may pick up later. I feel that the most important thing for the little ones is simply to feel comfortable with water, and the most important factor for that is how warm the swimming pool is. Most people have not heard that it's one of the top two or three most hotly debated issues in linguistics.
Violin would be another option -- it's a difficult instrument, but it seems a lot of gifted violinists started as children. I think soccer being less popular in America is good because then he may be able to be a bigger fish in a small pond. His parents aren't bilingual so sadly we won't be able to teach him another language, that might have to wait til school.


In addition to, hopefully, instilling a love of books and reading - it is great training for listening. I have no desire to be a pushy stage mother but if our kid does show interest and ability at something it would be nice to encourage it.
If you want even a chance of seeing if there is actually a critical period, your house needs to become an environment for X language. This is typically how it works out for families who speak language X at home while the society at large has Language Y as the common language.
The pathways in our brain to learn new language start to die and we will always have an accent and it will always be difficult. The balance bikes linked to further up are already on the birthday shopping list, so good call on that. It's not about decoding words but grappling with language and communication that's a big interesting task. Nowadays I just wish I was proficient enough at an instrument to play along with friends and family.
In educational toys since 15 years between the warmth of the wood and cloth a developed product. Walking on lines, walking on low row of bricks, standing on one foot etc are all great for later specific physical activities.
I don't say all of this to be a wet blanket, but as someone who knows the research and has the experience of raising bilingual children.
I have no memory of not knowing how to swim and this is apparently a blessing as I have noted from periodic posts from adults who are learning how to swim. Soccer is also physical and I would avoid having him head the ball excessively at a young age.
I wish my parents had made me stick with it a bit more or enrolled me in a better dance school. A real educational effect, taking advantage of your opinion in reaction of the voices of experienced teachers of early childhood education, child, parents, also has developed educational toys cherished the warm, and the material wood and cloth. It would be a little sad to find out at 12 that he showed talent at say, gymnastics but started too late to make anything of it. Tanizaki and I are both speakers of English and Japanese who are raising bilingual children.
The world (school, tv, movies, books) is English so we have to fight for those few hours of every day to speak Japanese. If we were to to stop speaking Japanese at home, I don't doubt for a second that the kids would eventually lose it.
