Gross motor activities create an opportunity for lots of fun and games.
Using a trampoline is also a great activity to improve balance. Let children have fun jumping from an indoor trampoline onto a homemade crash pad, with a duvet cover filled with foam squares. Jumping provides proprioceptive feedback, which is directed immediately into the lower extremities, and then flows into the rest of the body and the up and down movement affects the vestibular system.
Beanbags are also great for throwing and catching, especially if children struggle to run after balls. You can throw them to each other, into a basket, that you can move to any direction.
Chasing bubbles is as well a great way for children to have fun and improve their motor skills. Try blowing the bubbles and let your child chase and pop them.
It’s particularly important for parents of children with special needs to create and participate in these activities with their children. With extra attention and support from parents, children can consistently improve their skills and coordination.
