Have you ever tried spinners on the playground and felt an immediate awareness of your whole body? Swinging, swaying, spinning, and climbing activate a part of your sensory system, too!
These types of input support your child’s development of body awareness, balance, and orientation of self and their environment. Here are some types of new sensory play ideas #athome!
- Row, rock, and sway with your child for calming proprioceptive and vestibular input: theinspiredtreehouse.com/row-row-row-boat-3-fun-ways-t0-ride-waves
