This a fun activity that helps kids work on balance and coordination while standing on one leg!
You can make this a part of an obstacle course or use it as a game to stand on while picking objects from the floor. Don’t loose your balance!
Use these fun suction cups to strengthen your little ones arms while standing on balancing on disc. We also love them for the car windows during long drives and the bathtub!
Long cold days inside the house? No problem! Use these scooter boards to zoom around the house while on your belly or place heavy objects on top and use them as a pretend sled.
Another great item! Toss them in and out of buckets, laundry baskets or trash cans! For some added variety, try picking them up and throwing them with your child’s feet.
Use these soft blocks to build tall towers, kick down, carry in laundry baskets, and make them part of obstacle courses. Perfect for our smallest friends working on standing balance while reaching.
Mom’s yoga ball has just turned into therapy fun and strengthening at home! Children can use it to sit on while playing with toys or magnets, they can roll over it while on their bellies or play an oversized game of catch.
