Four year old can climb up stairs using a method of bringing both feet together on each step before proceeding to the next step. However, young children may still need some "back-up" assistance to prevent falls in case they become unsteady in this new skill. Children at this age can jump and hop higher as their leg muscles grow stronger. Many can even hop on one foot for short periods of time.
Also at this age, children develop better upper body mobility. As a result, their catching and throwing abilities improve in speed and accuracy. In addition, they can typically hit a stationary ball from a tee with a bat. As whole body coordination improves, children of this age can now peddle and steer a tricycle. They can also kick a larger ball placed directly in front of their bodies.
