Rainbow River Stones
Get ready to have a fun filled time with these soft play stones! These soft, tactile stones enhance vestibular balance, promotes movement, coordination, and activates muscle development. Have your student walk on these colorful rainbow river stones while learning to balance! Using movable balance objects allows for different patterns and distance between objects. This creates problem-solving and motor planning opportunity.
Each set includes [3pcs]- RED, YELLOW, GREEN
Whaler Sensory Board
The whaler sensory board is textured with waves and bubbles on the surface to provide children with tactile stimulations to feet. The ergonomic board is designed for young children ages 1.5+ to either sit in or stand on for a fun rock balancing game. The grooved waves design on the back can prevent finger trapping injuries.
The balance rope is 6 foot long. The 2" round polypropylene rope provides a more challenging walking surface than a traditional flat beam, increasing the balance difficulty for all ages.
Why are gross motor skills important?
Gross motor skills are important to enable children to perform everyday functions, such as walking, running, skipping, as well as playground skills (e.g. climbing) and sporting skills (e.g. catching, throwing and hitting a ball with a bat). These are crucial for everyday self-care skills like dressing (where you need to be able to stand on one leg to put your leg into a pant leg without falling over).
Gross motor abilities also have an influence on other everyday functions. For example, a child's ability to maintain table top posture (upper body support) will affect their ability to participate in fine motor skills (e.g. writing, drawing, and cutting) and sitting upright to attend to class instruction, which then impacts on their academic learning. Gross motor skills impact on your endurance to cope with a full day of school (sitting upright at a desk, moving between classrooms, carrying your heavy school bag).
Flexible and versatile 2" diameter 6" circumference textured poly rope.

Tactile Stepping Pathway
Tactile Stepping Pathway
Children work on balance while walking on the raised and rigid tactile pathway.
Improve spatial awareness while balancing
Balancing activities challenge the brain to adjust its spatial orientation using the proprioceptive system.
Balancing helps aid the brain to place words on a page, to read from left to right and to write patterns in sequence.
Activities that involve balancing help the brain to anchor information and improve memory retrieval.
