Balance Activity for Kids

Balance Activity for Kids

If you are looking for an easy balance activity for kids, just try narrowing their base of support with a balance bridge! As our walking and gross motor skills develop, our base of support when walking naturally becomes more narrow.

A balance bridge, or heel to toe walking, challenges our balance and kicks in ankle, hip, and core muscles.

No Balance Bridge?

Get creative! Building your own bridge with books and finding obstacles around the house or in your neighborhood can be just as beneficial.

Perform activities recommended by Walk, Talk, Play at your own risk with appropriate adult supervision provided. Walk, Talk, Play is not responsible for any injury caused while performing these play activities.
