OT/PT Corner: Gross Motor Movement Break – Roll-an-Animal Walk
[Source: OT Mom Says]
Several months ago, I created a Trolls inspired movement game that has continued to be a big hit in my house. With the success of this game in mind, I decided to create another gross motor break game, and the Roll- an- Animal Walk game cube was born!
Animal walks are a great activity for kids, as the movements have many benefits. Weight-bearing on extended limps provides for strengthening and proprioceptive input. For more about the benefits and importance of upper extremity weight bearing, check out this other post.
