Head outside with your child and pick some physical activity that he has mastered such as running or swinging.  Then, think of a way to make the activity difficult, such as running backward or swinging using just one leg.  Enjoy the humor of doing the activity in a silly way.  Then, have a quick discussion about how it feels for it to be hard to do something.  Ask your child if he knows anyone who has a hard time doing something. Talk about how that person might feel.
