Core Muscle: Toys for Building Posture, Core Muscle, Motor Skills and Balance

This article provides you with information regarding core muscle. Affiliate links are included for your convenience. Integrated Learning Strategies (ILS) is a learning and academic center. As a reminder, ILS is not a health care provider and none of our materials or services provide a diagnosis or treatment of a specific condition or learning challenge you may see in your child or student. If you seek a diagnosis or treatment for your child or student, please contact a trained professional who can provide an evaluation of the child.

Providing your child with toys to build and strengthen their core muscle can help your child’s learning in the classroom. Kids who lay on their desk, have poor posture and struggle to copy notes from the chalkboard sometimes have trouble with core muscle strength. Some children even struggle with retained primitive reflexes that can affect their posture and head position as they listen to their teacher in school.

In addition, many children who have trouble sitting still in their chair, often fidget or can’t focus and attend in school can have poor muscle tone and balance and coordination issues.

If your child struggles with core muscle and motor skills you may notice that they have difficulty doing simple tasks like climbing a rope, swinging on the monkey bars, swimming, leaping, jumping and doing activities on their back or tummy. If your child is prone to walking on their toes after age five, this can also be a sign of issues with their vestibular system and core muscle.

For better core muscle, try developing your child’s motor skills with fun toys and activities. You can also encourage them to do many of the exercises in this fun Core Strengthening Handbook.
