Today I am putting together a picture list of some of our favorite gross motor toys. Adeline has low tone so I am always looking for something we can use in the house that is fun and helpful in building up her muscles. These are some of our favorites:
Most of these help with core strength but the scooter is great because it also helps build upper body strength. Pediastaff recently published a list of ten things to do on a scooter board.
We are spoiled, Adeline's grandpa built her this swing. A swing is great for working on core strength.
A Bilibo, this is an interesting toy, Adeline is not a fan of it but my six year old loves it. I will flip it over sometimes and use it as a stool for Adeline to sit on. Starfish Therapies did a post recently about using a Bilibo.
A small trapoline for jumping is great. Adeline's feet to not leave the ground but she enjoys jumping with her feet attached.
A water table can also be a beneficial gross motor tool because it can require pulling to a stand, squatting and reaching. This was the first thing Adeline pulled to a stand at, she love the water. It is alway motivating.
The last of our favorites is a climbing toy with a slide,
