Jumping into a new week like...
⬆️Jumping is a motor milestone that requires strength, balance, coordination, body awareness and motor planning. Here are some tips from our physical therapy team to help your child get some air! 🙌🏼
⬆️Animal jumps: instead of just walking from point 🅰️to point 🅱️, model the movements of your favorite animals 🐸 🦘🐰
⬆️Over, on, & up: get creative with the objects you jump over (stuffed animals, puddles 💦), jump on (bubble wrap, alphabet letters 🔠), and jump up to reach (bubbles, balloons 🎈)
⬆️Practice! Different surfaces offer unique challenges - how does it feel to jump on carpet vs. hardwood vs. soft grass vs. padded mats vs. a trampoline❓
