A balance board, also known as a wobble board, is an excellent toy for your child for a ton of reasons. It can serve as a great playtime accessory and even be used as a tool for exercise. But what kind of balance board is best for your child and what ages should they start using them? Don’t worry because we’ve answered those questions and more!
A Balance Board Serves As Both A Toy And A Gym
If your baby starts walking, it’s time to take advantage of this board. For example, you can teach him to overcome the barrier of the board by crawling on it. If your baby is older, then encourage him to lift one foot and then the other on the balance board to stimulate his locomotor system.
There are infinite ways to take advantage of the KIMBOO™ wobble board. Your baby will be happy to feel it move. While playing you will be stimulating the flexibility and strength of their whole body. Balance brings awareness of the body to your baby and he will also discover the relationship of space and where to move to.
For children, play is a method of learning. It is time to take advantage of this and stimulate their emotional, cognitive, social and motor development with the balance board.
What Age Should My Child Use A Balance Board?
According to the age of each child, they should learn more skills. Around 10 months, the baby will start crawling and it will be a good time to integrate the KIMBOO™ board into his adventures and under your supervision. How do I use the wobble board? You can sit your baby down or encourage him to stand.
When children stand on one foot, a lot happens to their body and head. For example, the brain will learn to anticipate situations and thus move more quickly.
The Junior Raw board, designed for the youngest in the house, can also be used as a practical rocking chair where your baby will always want to rest. Soon your baby will discover more ways to use it: as a table or as a tunnel, to mention a few alternatives.
Stimulation Doesn’t Just Come From Professionals
We are by no means ruling out the importance of professionals. Rather, it is necessary to consider that as adults we can promote the development of children from home through various games that can easily be had at home.
For example, the KIMBOO™ Climb is a toy that will help your child develop from 6 months old and on. From this wooden triangle, you can grab and coordinate strength and limbs to stand, walk around or use it as a tunnel in the first months. As the baby develops and grows, he will learn to discover more and more uses. You’re sure to see him climbing in it or using it as a tent.
The Connection Between The Ear And Balance
Through the ear, the human body maintains balance. A healthy ear will contribute to the baby’s psychomotor development. It will also help children to maintain an upright posture and to activate their muscles when necessary. The ear works in accordance with sight. This happens by stimulating balance you can teach children to develop physically.
These toys will help your child by providing a sense of off-balancing, causing further development in your child as they adapt to the feeling of being off-balance.
When children discover that they are capable of overcoming barriers they feel motivated and happy. Climbing, descending, balancing, walking, jumping, are undoubtedly aspects that contribute to healthy growth.
