Friday Favorite Equipment
Today’s sensory equipment is the 🐸Frog Swing 🐸
Movement on the frog swing can be both linear and rotatory and provides both vestibular and proprioceptive input. It can also be used to facilitate prone extension pattern and required the child to flex the lower extremities.
When the child sits on the swing, you can encourage appropriate pumping and posture, working on core and coordination. Have the child kick a balance ball or knock down a tower from cardboard blocks while swinging.
Play Superman or let your child throw bean bags at a target while riding in prone. In this position, you can also play Tug of War, by having the child hold on to a rope while you gently pull it.
