- Gross Motor
REFINE (clear all)
Gross motor skills are important for navigating everyday life, using the body’s large muscles, to walk, run, crawl, climb, throw and more. Children must engage in activities to develop gross motor skills if they are to feel confident and in control of their bodies. We offer a variety of gross motor skills games and activities so that children can develop these large muscles as well as balance and stability.
Basic Concepts in Motion is a great starting point for young children coming to grips with their capabilities. This fun-filled deck of cards introduces ideas of relative size, space and distance – comparing big steps with little steps, for example. Basic Concepts in Motion also comes with several game ideas to really engage with children.
The Bean Bag Launching Board makes gross motor development a blast, catapulting soft bean bags into the air for kids to catch. This can be played solo or in pairs to build communication skills, and is also a great way to practise balancing.
For a more challenging balance activity, the Stepping Logs and Stones turn your child into a tiny tight-rope walker. The non-slip surface makes them great for any obstacle course, inside or out.
