[Source: Pink Oatmeal]
It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here. I’ll admit, I’m pretty excited that the Hallmark Channel has started playing their Christmas movies. Even though it’s not even Thanksgiving people have been asking what to get my little man for Christmas. I’m sure I’m not alone. I’ve come up with a simple list of stocking stuffers that promote motor development!

1. Knobby Balls – I love the bumpy texture to add a sensory aspect to the ball. They are great from baby to big kid. Kicking, catching, and rolling are just a few of the benefits of ball play.
2. Blocks – Blocks are the best. Not only are they great for stacking and building for fine motor skills but they can be used in gross motor play. The ladies at the Inspired Treehouse have a fun post on how blocks can be used for gross motor play!
