Any activity that gets your child or student to wobble is great for strengthening the balance system. When we incorporate different types of wobble toys in the child’s routine or therapy sessions, we are challenging the balance system while also building areas of the neck, core, shoulders, arms and legs.
A strong balance system is one of the primary foundational elements for attention and focus in the classroom. Good balance is also important for the development of a child’s visual and auditory needed for reading, writing and retention.
Kids with an underdeveloped balance system may struggle with the following:
- Fear or Anxiety
- Motion sickness or vertigo
- Trouble reading and retaining information
- Attention and focus
- Spacing letters and numbers across the page
- Fidgeting and following tasks
Using wobble toys at home or in therapy sessions can make balance activities more fun and motivating for kids to participate. They are also important for developing both your child’s static and dynamic balance. You can use these types of toys to sharpen the child’s balance milestones as well as additional motor skills needed for higher learning.
As the child uses these toys, adjust the activities to make them easier if needed. Gradually make the activities harder as the child becomes stronger and balance improves.
Here are a few of our favorite wobble toys helping kids develop areas of balance, coordination and core muscle.
