Winner of the Mom's Choice Gold Award, these great cards are divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced activities. Each card tells you why and how the activity works, what you need for it, and ways to make it more challenging. It also tells you what to look for, to make sure your child is getting the most out of the activity.
Each activity included is developmentally based.
The activities are organized into three levels*:
- Beginner (green): preschooler
- Intermediate (blue): primary-school child
- Advanced (red): elementary-school child
*skills based on a typically developing child
In addition, all activities include suggestions for more challenging moves as kids develop more skills.
Flexible and adaptable.
Each activity includes ways to customize the movement experiences to suit your child’s specific needs. Because your child is unique, is better at some moves than others, has definite preferences, and does not want to do the same old exercises day after day, please feel free to get creative!
Addressing many skills simultaneously.
Rather than concentrating on one skill at a time, these activities incorporate many basic sensory, motor, and visual skills. The primary skills addressed are listed on each card.
