Basic Questions When Choosing a Game or Activity: Gross Motor


1. If the game is to be played at a table or desk, does the furniture fit the child so he can sit up straight with feet on the floor?  Make sure your child has good posture by providing the right size of furniture and by building his upper body. Chair: feet flat on floor     Table top: 2 inches above bent elbow

2. Can the game be played standing at the table or while the child is sitting on a chair variation such as a ball or T stool?  Insure the development of your child’s sitting balance.

3. Can the game be played on the floor with child lying on his stomach, propped on his forearms?  This position helps strengthen the upper body and arms.

Favorite games for gross motor development: Body Boggle, Twister, Floor checkers, swing sets and climbing equipment, big boxes
