You can perform battements and scales with your toes. Sit on a chair, with your feet flat on the floor. Pick up the right big toe, then the second toe, then third, fourth and fifth, sequentially. Then sequentially lower each toe down starting with the fifth toe. Repeat on the left foot. You can press the tip of the toe down with your hand if you find the toes come up at once. On the way down, you can hold the toes from underneath the toe to allow one toe to lower at a time. Enjoy!
